Why Give

With The Bay Park’s first phase underway, the Bay Park Conservancy’s priority is to create an open, accessible, and free public space where the Sarasota community can come together. The Bay Park Conservancy is responsible for the development, implementation, management, and operation of the park and your investment is critical to the realizing the possibilities of The Bay.

Our initiative has already earned the support of local community foundations, with a match opportunity in place thanks to The Patterson Foundation. You can make a gift and contribute to The Bay Park and join us in reaching our goal to have the first phase of the park complete in 2-3 years.

You can give to The Bay in a number of ways, through making a donation or an in-kind gift, by volunteering, or by advocating for our initiative and staying up-to-date as it develops.
