Friends of the Greenway

Nature needs good friends like you!

Friends of the Greenway are a community of annual supporters with a deep connection to the Anne Springs Close Greenway, inspired to preserve a place for people to celebrate and experience nature for generations to come. Friends of the Greenway support the efforts of the Greenway to preserve our natural treasures, conserve habitats, promote health and wellness, and connect individuals to the wonder of the natural world.

All Friends of the Greenway receive a family membership with a gift of $500+. Additional Friends of the Greenway benefits are dependent upon gift level.

If you would like to maximize your gift by declining benefits received, please contact Leroy Springs & Company, Inc. 501(c)3 Tax ID: 57-0344121

Get Even Closer to Nature!

Make an impact by increasing your support over time. For our Friends who want to grow with the Greenway, the Step-Up Program is designed to help you reach that next level with incremental pledge increases over three-years. Friends of the Greenway who commit to the Step-Up Program will be recognized and extended benefits at the highest level pledged for each of the three years.

Please contact Brian Myers, Advancement Manager, at to join the Step-Up Program.
