Partners for Parks aims to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Mecklenburg County and the surrounding region by preserving, promoting and enhancing the parks, greenways, open spaces, active play and recreational opportunities within our community.
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 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 Trials, Open Streets 704 events and fundraising events for special projects including our Annual Hats Off To Parks event.
WE PROVIDE FUNDING
Every year our partnerships with businesses, individuals and organizations allow us to provide scholarships for children for after school programs and summer camps, funding for improvements to parks and equipment for recreation.
Partners for Parks is an advocate for our region’s park systems. We look for ways to influence community leadership and empower citizens to protect the environment, encourage healthy lifestyles and understand the value parks, recreation, greenways and open space can create in our communities.
