Donation Program Update - June 2023
We are currently experiencing some staffing issues and are unable to accommodate requests for bench adoptions or commemorative tiles. Please check back in September 2023 for program updates. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Eugene Parks Foundation is a public-private partnership with Eugene Parks and Recreation. The mission is to connect people and resources in ways that improve parks and recreation for the enjoyment and well-being of all. As an independent 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation works to provide resources for special projects the City cannot fund, helping to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability or background, is able to enjoy Eugene’s parks and recreation services.
Past projects made successful through support of the Foundation include:
- Accessible Play at Amazon Park
- Washington Park Spray Play
- Recreation Scholarships
- Riverbank Path Wayfinding
Visit the Foundation to learn more about how you can support Parks and Recreation through the Legacy Circle, Planned Giving, Estate Bequests, our Land Fund and more.
Volunteers maintain trails, remove invasive plants, spruce up playgrounds, plant natives, interact directly with park guests as tour guides and docents—and so much more. Show your love for our park system by joining our outstanding team of volunteers.
