Support Madison Square Park

We invite our neighbors to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy (MSPC) and contribute directly to the work they do. MSPC is the non-profit organization responsible for raising 100% of the funds needed to operate and program Madison Square Park.

These critical donations are required to care for and improve the park—which means your donations go directly towards keeping this incredible space in the heart of Flatiron and NoMad clean, green, and thriving.
