Overton Park is a place of connection–with nature, with culture, and with our friends and neighbors. That’s why our membership levels are all about connection.
Members of all levels make an incredible difference in the park. Your support is what makes the park run, keeping the restrooms clean, the grass cut, and the trash cans emptied. It also helps us to make enhancements to the park that benefit all users–things like creating safer entrances for bikes, pedestrians, and wheelchairs.
As our way of thanking you for your support of the park, each membership level offers a benefit to you. At the Individual ($50) level and above, you’re entitled to our exclusive members-only t-shirt, which changes every year. Our 2016 shirt by Kim Gurley of gurleygurl design pays tribute to our new Roots membership level and the deep relationship Memphians have with Overton Park.
A Roots membership of $240 annually entitles you to the regular benefits of park membership, along with invitations to events where you’ll get to know Conservancy staff and your fellow park lovers. Events range from family-friendly picnics to roundtable discussions to cocktail hours, all great occasions to celebrate the park and think about its future. A Canopy membership of $1,000 annually entitles you to Roots-level benefits plus the opportunity to direct your gift toward sponsorship of a day in the park. We will create temporary signage recognizing your donation and place it in the park.
You can become a member securely online by scrolling down to the form below. We ship out membership benefit packages every week, and your membership is valid for one year from the date of purchase. All memberships and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Questions or comments? Give us a shout.
