Planting Roots. Growing Community.
We are pleased to announce the following projects and programs throughout Spokane County were funded through donations made to the Spokane Parks Foundation. Many of these projects benefit under-served youth and all help to ensure our parks and recreational activities are accessible for all.
Here’s a snapshot of what YOU funded:
C.O.P.S Mounted Patrol: Funds will cover professional horse training for volunteers who serve with the community outreach Mounted Patrol Unit.
Spokane Police Activities League (PAL): This grant funds t-shirts, water, socks, new equipment and an end of year BBQ for this 6 week program taking place in 3 low income parks.
SpokFest: Summer Parkways is a 4-mile mobile block party between Manito and Comstock Parks. Taking place on June 20th from 6 – 9 PM, the project closes city streets on the route. In addition to meeting neighbors, activity stations along the way make this a fun, safe event.
Spokane Valley Police Activities League (PAL): Grant funds will provide equipment, jerseys, shoes, water bottles, lunches, bus passes, and more for Spokane Valley’s PAL program.
City of Spokane Parks and Recreation: The following programs received grant funds from the Foundation:
Therapeutic Recreation Services: Funds will be used as needed for Powderhounds, Funshine Day Camp, and Adaptive Ski and Snowboard programs.
Corbin Art Summer Kids Camp
Corn Hole League
City of Cheney Parks and Recreation: Funding to purchase outdoor recreational equipment.
Unfortunately, many of our grantees were unable to accommodate current COVID-19 restrictions with their spring and summer programs. We look forward to the opportunity to support their important work in the future.
