Community Grants Connect our Community
The Parks Foundation is proud to provide strategic funding opportunities in support of the parks, trails, and recreation programs of Clark County and its municipalities. Since the establishment of the Community Grant program in 2008, the Parks Foundation has awarded over $800,000 to projects and programs throughout Clark County. See below for a listing of past grant projects. We are proud of the Foundation’s ability to make a significant difference to the communities we serve, and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support from our Community Partners and community.
We invite you to renew your support for the Parks Foundation, or invest with us for the first time. In 2018 we will grow new landscapes, support community health, and continue to serve Clark County residents.
We are looking forward as we shape a bold and exciting future for the community we love and serve. Thank you for your financial support today!
