Park Pride rang in more than just a new year this week; the onset of 2014 means we’ve been in the business of improving parks and greenspaces for 25 years!

We have lots planned in the upcoming year to commemorate achievements in parks made since our founding in 1989 and give you a taste of what to expect over the next 25 years.

What have we got cookin’?

… and much more!

We hope that you’re as excited for 2014 as we are 🙂

25th Anniversary Sponsor:

PrintWe’re also very proud to announce Cox Conserves as our 25th Anniversary Sponsor! They have been a huge supporter of parks over the years and we definitely could not have accomplished as much as we have without them. Thank you!

Challenge Grant Goal Reached!

afthermo_25KWith your help and unwavering support, Park Pride reached the $25,000 fundraising goal to fulfill the terms of the 2013 Challenge Grant! This grant, issued by an anonymous donor, stipulated that each dollar donated to Park Pride would be matched, up to a total of $25K!

       And we did it! YOU did it! THANK YOU!

With the goal reached, Park Pride will leverage $50,000 from the $25,000 raised because each of your dollars were matched.

What does it all mean?! In 2014, Park Pride will organize more volunteer days in parks, contribute more to community gardens, and work with more Friends of Parks groups on park renderings! And that’s JUST the beginning 🙂

Again, a heart felt “thank you” from the entire Park Pride team. Now let’s get to work!
