The Parks Alliance is a fast-paced and lively small non-profit that welcomes big ideas and big personalities at our convenient West Philadelphia office. In recent years, the Alliance has significantly expanded its staff and volunteer base, and we're now looking to increase our fundraising support to continue this momentum.
