National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy

If you would like to make a donation to your local National park site, we can accept checks or money orders made payable to the National Park Service.

If you have a specific passion and would like the money to go to that cause, you should write a letter or note and request that the money be spent on ... (for example, if you particularly enjoy the Park Ranger programs at Governors Island National Monument, you can specify that you would like your donation to be spent on that program). We would then set up a specific account number to be used for that purpose solely.


If you just wish for the park to receive the money, then the park will deposit those funds in the "general" donation account which typically funds educational and interpretive events at the park.

German immigrant family

In 1860, nearly half of the enlisted men stationed on Governors Island had immigrated to New York from either Ireland or Germany. Women immigrants from these countries also took their first jobs "off the boat" as maids and servants in the officers' homes on the island.
