Love Your Parks…Give a Gift that Lasts a Lifetime.
As Lincoln grows, so does the demand for parks. Maintaining and building an outstanding park and recreation system is one way we can provide an excellent lifestyle for our citizens now and in the future.
As a nonprofit organization, the Lincoln Parks Foundation works in partnership with the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department. The Lincoln Parks Foundation’s sole mission is to help sustain and improve our parks and recreation facilities and programs, beyond what city tax dollars provide.
Since 2002, the Lincoln Parks Foundation has successfully raised $1.7 million for the Sunken Gardens renovation, $350,000 for the Hamann Rose Garden and most recently, $4.75 million for Union Plaza and its endowment…all through generous contributions from volunteers, businesses and foundations.
Private help is essential if we are going to continue to enjoy the benefits of our remarkable parks system. Love your parks…and give a gift that lasts a lifetime.
