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.
