Although Glen Echo Park is located within a National Park, the Partnership is not federally funded.
The Annual Fund provides critical funds that help sustain the Park’s diverse programs and historic facilities. These unrestricted gifts help keep the Partnership and the Park strong and vibrant.
Annual Fund contributions support a wide range of needs at the Park, including presenting free public festivals, concerts, and exhibitions; maintaining the 1921 Dentzel carousel and the historic Spanish Ballroom; processing registrations for over 7,000 students; and producing and distributing the Classes and Events catalog.
In addition to special projects and activities, the Annual Fund provides much-needed resources for essential day-to-day operations, such as fire safety and building repairs. While many of these efforts are behind-the-scenes, they help ensure the Park’s current success and future growth.
Annual Fund contributions are fully tax-deductible and serve the Partnership’s areas of greatest need. Gifts of all sizes have an impact and benefit all who come to enjoy the Park.
