How You Can Help

What They are Saying

If you value trees, historic preservation and re-greening of neighborhoods your donation to Restore Mass Ave will advance your passion.

We are the only grassroots neighborhood organization solely dedicated to re-greening and reviving the historic landscape on Embassy Row; this part of Mass Ave is a major thoroughfare in the nation’s capital on which 30,000 vehicles travel daily, it is one of the few remaining – and the most iconic – Grand Avenue in the U.S.

We’ve accomplished much in a few years, but we couldn’t do it without your support.

We depend on generous donations from people like you to carry on this work. We are entirely run by volunteers. Tell us your interests and passions in volunteering.
