The Parklands Fund

Sustain sustainability.

When you become a Member of The Parklands, you are supporting The Parklands Fund, an annual campaign that allows us to stay open 365 days a year, free of charge. The Parklands Fund helps care for the 77,980 trees planted through 2019, the management of nearly 2,000 acres of forest, the restoration of seven miles of stream banks – and so much more. Your contribution makes The Parklands possible.

We don’t limit donations to just cash payments. Leaf through some other options below that you can take to support The Parklands legacy. All gifts can be made online at the links below, by mail, or over the phone.

Volunteers

Preserving the landscape for future generations. Opening world-class events and programming to the public. Supporting educational goals for community-wide scientific literacy. All that goes into being a steward of The Parklands. Volunteers serve as instrumental partners in our mission to create a world-class park system that enhances the recreation and environment for posterity.

Shop for Good

Select “21st Century Parks” in programs like Amazon Smile or Kroger Community Rewards — you must re-enroll every year for “21st Century Parks / Parklands of Floyds Fork” — where your regular shopping results in a percentage of sales donated to your charity of choice. (And we hope you choose us!)
