Support Your Park

We couldn’t do it all without the generous support of visitors like you!

With your help, the Boston Harbor Islands continue to be an unmatched resource for recreation and learning right near the heart of downtown Boston.

With your support, the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership strives to serve the greater Boston community and its visitors with quality educational experiences, free and low-cost programming, welcoming facilities and park spaces, and free access to the park for thousands of underserved youth each year.

Three non-profit partners within the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership help to underwrite the many programs, projects and facilities that make the park a special and accessible public space for everyone:


Boston Harbor Now

Boston Harbor Now is the official non-profit partner of Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park, working at the intersection of people and nature to advocate for open space, public infrastructure, and private sector development that will enhance public access to the Harbor and protect the City from the impacts of climate change. Boston Harbor Now promotes the use, enjoyment, and awareness of the park by creating vibrant public spaces, investing in facilities, and providing free public programming, as well as raising and managing the public and private resources to support the park.

Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center

Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center (TIOBEC) creates positive and lasting change by providing learning expeditions for young people, adults, and organizations that leverage the island park as a resource along with Outward Bound core values.

The Trustees of Reservations

The Trustees of Reservations counts Worlds End among the many park properties it owns across the state.  For more than a century, The Trustees have been on the ground in communities across Massachusetts, working to protect special places, providing loving care of its reservations, building creative new programs to engage people, and sharing its expertise with neighbors and partners across the state.
