Randall’s Island Sports Foundation Mission Statement:
The Randall’s Island Park Alliance (RIPA) was founded in 1992 as a public-private partnership with the City of New York/Parks & Recreation. The Foundation, in conjunction with our local Community Boards and City leadership, works to realize the Island’s unique potential by developing sports and recreational facilities, restoring its vast natural environment, reclaiming and maintaining parkland, and sponsoring free community-linked sports and nature programs for the children of New York City. We plan to secure the Park’s future by balancing programmatic, operational and capital expenses with revenue generated by Island development, public commitments and private philanthropy.
