(a). Budget and Fundraising

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.

In 2020 the annual major ticket budget items are as follows:

  • $2,000 Real Estate Taxes
  • $400 Liability Insurance
  • $200 Maintenance Expenses (plants, mulch, etc)
  • $2,600 Total
