Green Umbrella Grants

Through its Green Umbrella program, the Brookline GreenSpace Alliance supports many of the park friends groups that are working to care for their neighborhood parks. Below is a brief summary of these services. To learn more, contact us at 617-277-4777 or

Park Initiatives Program
We provide financial support to our member organizations, through our Park Initiatives Program (PIP). The program is designed to encourage citizen initiative and stewardship in local parks, school grounds, median triangles, street tree lawns and conservation areas throughout Town. Application guidelines for the PIP can be found here.

Fiscal Sponsorship Services
We can act as fiscal sponsor for those member organizations raising money for their activities. Our fiscal umbrella allows member organizations to receive the tax advantages of a 501c(3) organization without having to incorporate as one.
