Battery Corporate Partnership

The Battery Conservancy is proud to partner with a select group of business and corporate sponsors who are committed to supporting the rebuilding of New York’s first waterfront park and the revitalization of the cultural life of Downtown Manhattan.

If your company is interested in supporting the Conservancy’s mission by joining the Battery Corporate Partnership, contact Melanie Simmerman at 212.344.3491 x12 or

Corporate Volunteer Groups
Through The Battery Corporate Partnership, your company can invest in the community and enrich the quality of life for your employees, customers, and community, as well as the millions of visitors who come to The Battery each year.  With membership in this program, benefits include group volunteer days where employees will work on essential projects throughout the park. Group volunteer days provide employees valuable team-building experiences and the opportunity to develop a sense of stewardship. Group size is limited to 25 people. For inquiries and questions contact Melanie Simmerman at 212.344.3491 x12 or msimmerman@thebattery.orgSee our past Corporate Volunteers here.

Non-Corporate Volunteer Groups
Any organizations that are not members of our Battery Corporate Partnership can schedule a volunteer day for a requested donation of $25 per person, and subject to project availability and the needs of the park and farm. To request a non-corporate group volunteer day, please email
