With Troy Rehabilitation & Improvement Program (TRIP) acting as the fiscal depository/bookkeeping agent, the Col. Albert Pawling Memorial Statue Project was able to collect funds that would be considered tax-deductible. Through the two years of fundraising, the project was able to raise $85,000, of the $68,000 needed, to erect the statue. Today, TRIP is still collecting funds, but now for the Friends of Pawling Park until the Friends can claim their own 501(c)(3) status – which should be official in the Summer of 2017.

Donations are vital for the maintenance of the park/statue; annual city & neighborhood events and more.
