Since our founding in 1951, the Spokane Parks Foundation has worked hard to deliver concrete results.
In 2012 alone we served more than 2,000 children through Save Our Summer, awarded $36,305 in grants and lent our expertise to the renovation of the wading pool in Millwood and the creation and maintenance of several parks and trails around the county. Each of these was made possible through the generosity of the many individuals, businesses and community organizations who share our goal of making Spokane a healthier, more vital and more competitive city.
Over the past 60 years we have invested well over $2,000,000 in grants and projects - ranging from the planting of trees, to scholarships for low-income children, to the creation and installment of the Runners in the Park sculpture, the development of the South Hill Soccer Complex and the support of numerous fairs, festivals and community celebrations.
As an independent, non-partisan advocate we fill the gaps between what our parks need to thrive and what annual budgets can provide. Your ongoing support will enable us to continue to lead projects, like those above, which enhance the economic strength and quality of life for all of greater Spokane.
