We Thank Our Generous Sponsors!

Together, We Can Do More!  Our generous Sponsors donate funds that are earmarked for neighborhood Beautification Projects, for our Adopt a Tree Fund, for Social Gatherings and Events, or for our General Fund.  Sponsors’ donations help us to do more to benefit our neighborhood. We recognize and thank them here.

2022 Beautification Sponsors

GPRA Beautification Team created two new monument marker beds on Chamberlayne Avenue in 2018, and in the past 5 years, renovated and began maintaining 19 beds on Brook Road that the City stopped maintaining. In Spring 2022, we partnered with neighbors to renovate the traffic calming islands on East and West Seminary Avenue. We are about enhancing the beauty of our neighborhood.  Your Sponsorships and volunteerism make it happen!

Rick Jones and Mervyn Han, Brook Road neighbors, whose generous Sponsoship funded the renoation of the  East Seminary Avenue traffic calming island.

Dr. Steven Welton, Seminary Avenue neighbor, has contributed planting materials and hundreeds of spring bulbs every year since 2017 for the Chamberlayne Avenue monument marker garden beds and Brook Road beds. Steve was the first leader of our GPRA Beautification Team, and continues to be generous with his donations and his energy.


Adopt a Tree Sponsors

Every spring, the GPRA Tree Team completes a survey of our canopy, noting vacant City Street Tree Wells. Then, we assist neighbors who wish to apply for trees for medians adjacent to their homes. GPRA pays 50% of the City fees for trees adopted by GPRA Members. Generous Sponsors to our Tree Fund make it possible to plant more trees every year, sponsoring trees in areas of our neighborhood that are missing a significant number of trees, contributing to keeping our canopy lush.
