Donations made to the general fund of the Friends pay for the annual operating expenses of the park. The City of Philadelphia contributes electricity and water through the Department of Parks and Recreation. All other expenses are funded by donations from residents, businesses and other friends of the park.
While many park activities are performed by volunteers, the general fund covers the fees of professional arborists, maintenance costs of the fountain and grounds, semiweekly sweeping of the park, printing and postage costs, plants and gardening supplies, and the cost of the Concerts in the Park series. We are grateful for all donations. The Friends of Louis I. Kahn Park is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
