GivingTuesday provides us an opportunity to tell our story and raise funding to create and update our programs and activities” says Robert Cothern, President of the Black Canyon City Community Association that owns Black Canyon Heritage Park. “These programs will meet the COVID guidelines while providing people a link to the joys of being outdoors.

Your Park Relies on Funding From:
The Heritage Park Coalition works hard to apply for grants and reach out to community sponsors, and these efforts have paid off.
Individual donations are crucial to the operations of the Park. 100% of all funds from all sources (donations, fundraising, and grants) will be used for tax-exempt activities that support the Park's mission. If you have a certain feature or activity that you’d like to see at the park, a donation is the quickest and easiest way to ask the management coalition to consider making that happen. A donation allows you to make a personal, unique contribution to our community.
