Corporate Giving and Sponsorship
Dane County Parks offers several opportunities for corporate sponsors to support our park system. These offer an extraordinary return on investment while helping us provide more recreational opportunities and special events for our community. We invite you to explore the many ways to give. Naming rights expire after ten years.

Barks for Parks Annual Fundraiser for Dane County Dog Parks – various levels
Dane County Parks created one of the first dog park programs in the nation. Today our seven dog parks are some of our most used and beloved parks welcoming more than 600,000 people per year. Dane County Parks host an annual fundraiser to raise money for dog park upgrades and improvements.
Friends Group Events
Dane County Parks depends on the help and support of volunteers to keep our park system beautiful. Individual volunteers and nineteen friends groups adopt specific parks, help advocate for park properties, fundraise, provide maintenance, and host a variety of public events. The dedication of these groups and individuals is what brings the parks to life. With your support we can continue to make our great places even better. Consider sponsoring one of the great friends group events that happen throughout the year. Event examples include music festivals, trail runs, family events and more.
