Foundation Offers Ways to Support Nature and the Community
A PROGRAM THAT INSPIRES
The Hamilton County Parks Foundation Scholarship Program gives families and organizations the opportunity to send a child to a Park District program or camp with financial assistance. Children under the age of 18 can take part in day camps, school and scout programs, hands-on activities and other programs. In 2012, the Scholarship Program awarded almost $4,000 to individuals needing financial assistance to participate in Park District programs. Several scholarships went to participants in the Special Rider’s Program at Winton Woods Riding Center.
LEAVE A LEGACY
The Foundation’s Legacy Tree Program is a great way to honor a friend, a loved one or pet, all while beatifying the parks. Contributors can purchase new trees or adopt existing trees that include a bronze plaque and long term tree care by the Hamilton County Park District. In 2012, contributions enabled the Park District to plant and maintain 26 trees.
GREAT PARKS TO SIT IN
The Foundation launched its Adopt-A-Bench Program in 2012, where contributors can provide long term care for a park bench and have a plaque installed with a personalized message.
EARN REWARDS FOR PARKS
Those who use their Kroger Plus Card can also help to benefit the Hamilton County Parks Foundation through the Community Rewards Program. Qualified purchases made with a Plus Card will contribute to the Foundation and does not affect personal shopping savings or fuel points.
