Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle honors individuals, corporations, and foundations who support the Esplanade Association annually with a gift of $5,000 or more.

Leadership Circle members share our mission to ensure that the Charles River Esplanade remains a dynamic and thriving community resource for generations to come. Their dedication and generosity enable us to maintain 10 ornamental gardens and 2 playgrounds, and continue our organic park care, as well as to provide free programming throughout the year. This group of visionaries plays an important role within our community by helping us curate and cultivate this iconic and precious space that runs through Boston.

As some of our most important partners, we want to recognize their leadership in making the Esplanade a place where people come together to share, explore and enjoy nature and community.
