Foundation for the Dane County Parks Endowment

Endowment funds are designed to support special projects and programs, educational opportunities, interpretation, and volunteerism to a growing and diverse population.

The Foundation for the Dane County Parks Endowment Fund was created to provide a permanent perpetual source of revenue and sustaining support to the Dane County Parks friends groups and over 4,000 volunteer stewards of our county’s most precious natural resources. It also provides funding for projects such as Accessible Fishing and Boating Improvements throughout the Dane County Park system.

The endowment is held and managed by the Madison Community Foundation, a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) public charity. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Please consider joining those in our community who support the long legacy and stewardship of our land with a tax-deductible gift today.
