The Method

In addition to special fundraising events, the Foundation plans to accomplish its goals by soliciting tax-deductible contributions from individuals, businesses, community organizations and other foundations.

We, the members of the Friends of the Parks Foundation, accept the challenge to maintain the highest standard of recreational opportunities from our District.  We ask that each of you join with us for the benefit of ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and our community.
