The mission of the Lincoln Parks Foundation is to inspire and nurture a philanthropic legacy for parks and recreation in our community.
HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:
- $50 helps a child in need participate in golf camp and Jim Ager Golf Course.
- $100 plants one flower, every year, forever in the Sunken Gardens.
- $200 plants a tree in a local park.
A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Lincoln has an impressive community wide parks and recreation system that includes 128 parks, 85 playgrounds, 133 miles of trails,10 pools, 5 recreation centers, and 5 public golf courses. Excellent amenities like these are important for our community's strong quality of life and economic development. The Lincoln Parks Foundation works in partnership with the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department to sustain and improve our park system. We are grateful for the support of individuals, corporate donors, and other charitable foundations in this effort.
As part of our mission, we provide support for citizens, charitable groups, businesses, and neighborhood associations in making improvements to the park facilities in their neighborhood. In 2017, we supported six different community-led projects, including a free concert at Tower Square, yoga in Antelope Park, and a pollinator garden at Calvert Recreation Center. In 2018, we will work with an 8-year-old boy to add playground equipment to his neighborhood park, Bishop Heights. The work of the Foundation is magnified and amplified by the passion and care of our citizens. Each person can make a difference…we are here to help. We are grateful for your support!
