Preserve the natural wonder of Summit County with a gift to the Metro Parks Foundation.

Metro Parks Foundation

The Metro Parks Foundation is a nonprofit endowment that was established in 1991 to further the goals and mission of Summit Metro Parks. The Foundation accepts gifts and grants to support the park district's charitable, educational and scientific initiatives.

Each year, Summit County residents and organizations recognize special people, celebrate events and memorialize loved ones by donating to one of several programs. Giving is easy and long lasting.

Foundation Funds
The Foundation gratefully accepts donations ranging from $10 to $10,000 or more. Businesses and individuals alike may support ongoing initiatives such as programs, events, research and administration.

For more information, call the administrative offices at 330-867-5511, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
