On August 1, Verde, a NE Portland-based nonprofit, is launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise $75,000 toward the final funding gap to convert a 25-acre former landfill into a public park for one of the city’s most park-deprived places: the Cully neighborhood in Northeast Portland. Verde and Portland Parks have raised more than $10.9 million toward Cully Park’s $11.3M budget over the past five years, and the community-led “Let Us Build Cully Park” effort on Generosity on Indigogo is the final push to complete the fundraising. This public-private partnership demonstrates a new model for community-based development of healthy open spaces.
