As a resident of Clark County, chances are you have a favorite memory of a local park. Did you spend hours at the playground at Kiwanis Park? Have you wandered through the miles of trails on the Ellen Davis Trail System? Or maybe you love to take your four-legged family members out for a game of catch at Ike Memorial Dog Park! You can continue the legacy of our community by helping to provide the best parks, trails, and recreational programs in the Pacific Northwest. Please consider making a financial contribution to the Parks Foundation today. Your donation can support a grant for new equipment, provide local students with athletic scholarships, or help improve the safety of our trails. Have a specific project in mind? Your donation can support a grant of your choosing or can be used based on current needs. Please continue to the bottom of the page for a complete list of all the ways you can support the Parks Foundation today. Your support makes a difference!
Many recreation programs and area parks are not funded by tax dollars beyond basic levels. The Parks Foundation helps fill the funding gap for special projects, creative play structures, summer camps, youth sports, and so much more, making Clark County a great place to live and work! Please consider supporting the Parks Foundation with an ongoing or annual membership. Your membership includes a discount to our annual luncheon and an invitation to our annual member event. Please visit our membership page for more information on levels of giving and how to sign up to be a Parks Foundation Member. (PS you get a cool window cling to show off to all your friends!)
