Help the people, the communities, and the environment of New Haven with your donation. 

If you prefer to donate by check, please send checks addressed to URI, 195 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511. 


Your donation will support New Haven Urban Resources Initiative's two main programs:  Community Greenspace and GreenSkills

In our Community Greenspace program, we work with more than 1,000 New Haven residents in over 50 sites across the city each summer to reclaim abandoned lands, plant street trees, and improve local parks.  

GreenSkills is a local green jobs program that employs high school students and ex-offenders through the planting of trees requested by city residents. GreenSkills connects people to their communities, their environment, and each other.  To learn more about the ex-offender experience in the program, please watch our short video.

The perks of being a donor

We invite you to join Urban Resources Initiative in support of community-based natural resource management in New Haven. In return for your tax-deductible contribution, twice a year you will receive a hard copy of our newsletter, Urban Issues – a great way to stay informed about our work and read stories about the work of communities throughout New Haven!  Upon request, people giving donations of $50 or more will receive a Guide to New Haven's Trees (in Spanish or English) published in 2011.
