Ward 8 Woods depends on donations from people of goodwill to sustain our staff and their work. As a small, grassroots organization with low overhead, a little bit goes a long way.

  • $25 buys a week worth of snacks for our crew of Park Stewards
  • $50 pays a Park Steward for two hours of work, during which they’ll remove over 200 pounds of trash from the woods
  • $100 covers the insurance for our pickup truck for two weeks

Give $50 or more and we’ll send you a Ward 8 Woods t-shirt!  

Give $200 or more and founder Nathan Harrington will take you on a guided hike at a Ward 8 park of your choice.

All contributions are tax-deductible.

Donate Stock

Ward 8 Woods is able to accept gifts of stock! Donating investments has even greater tax benefits than donating cash. Donate Stock makes it easy.

In-Kind Donations

We also gladly accept in-kind donations of work gloves, trash bags, snack foods, certain tools, and office supplies. To make an in-kind donation, email
