WE SUPPORT COMMUNITIES & MANAGE DONATIONS

As a non-profit 501c3, we offer our communities a tool and support for raising money for their park and recreation projects. Whether it is for park improvements, special projects, events or programs, we manage over 90 funds that allow public-private partnerships to foster and build opportunities that wouldn’t be met with public funding.

WE VOLUNTEER

We volunteer our time and expertise to make a difference in our communities to enable better outdoor experiences. This year our board members have been very busy helping organize the U.S. Paralympic Team Trails, Open Streets 704 events and fundraising events for special projects including our Annual Hats Off  To Parks event.

WE PROVIDE FUNDING
