The Crease Street Garden is maintained entirely by volunteers, and is managed by Friends of the Crease Street Garden, a 501(c)(3) Pennsylvania non-profit corporation.
The land on which the Garden is situated is privately owned, and is under a long term lease to the corporation. The Garden receives no governmental support, but rather meets its annual budget from donations from people like you, fundraising undertaken by the residents of Crease Street, as well as an occasional private grant and in kind raffle donations from various local businesses.
The operational budget for 2023 is as follows:
- $4,000 Real Estate Taxes
- $1,300 Liability Insurance
- $400 Maintenance Expenses (plants, mulch, etc)
- $5,700 Total
The projected 2023 expenses are based on the assumption the Garden is NOT acquired by NGT. If the sale goes through the annual expenses will change considerably.
