Great Parks, Great People!

Through the community’s continued and generous support, the Bloomington Parks Foundation enhances and expands Bloomington’s parks. By receiving gifts of land and funds, we are able to secure new park space and trails as well as help improve existing ones.

We are also able to achieve our goal of improving the lives of children. By providing scholarship assistance to youth in need, young members of our community can participate in park programs and summer camps, learning valuable life lessons and skills that they then carry out into their schools, neighborhoods and families.

We strive to be excellent stewards of all charitable gifts, as well as work diligently to increase financial support to our important mission. With your generosity we continue to succeed in promoting Great Parks, Great People!

Bloomington Parks Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
