One goal of the Greater Metro Parks Foundation is to raise money for Metro Parks Tacoma programs. These donations help to enhance the quality and accessibility of these fun, healthy and educational programs so more children and families can enjoy these deeply valued opportunities.
Twice a year the Foundation presents the Metro Parks board of commissioners with a check representing our recent fundraising efforts. On January 26th, we were honored to present a check for $65,000.
We shared stories of our donors and of the participants who benefit from this support. This check represented donations from hundreds of supporters; their generosity enriches and sustains Metro Parks programs including Adaptive Recreation, Specialized Recreation, Youth Sports, Arts, Nature Education Programs and more.
Special thanks to the following who gave to support Metro Parks programs:
The employees of Metro Parks Tacoma through their Legacy Campaign, The Baker Foundation, The Bamford Foundation, The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, Comcast Foundation, The Gary E. Milgard Family Foundation, The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, REI, Tacoma Rainiers and Wells Fargo Foundation.
