Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Alliance for Morris County Parks will support the Morris County Park System by raising funds for programs and facilities through donations, grants, and sponsorships. The Alliance will also encourage support through community outreach, advocacy, and partnerships.

The Alliance for Morris County Parks seeks sponsors, donors, and grants for programs and facilities. An annual golf outing is held to provide funding for specific programs or construction. The Alliance forms partnerships with companies, nonprofits, and social service agencies to enhance programs of the Morris County Park Commission as well as promote the Park Commission's many programs and facilities. An annual community awards event is held to recognize outstanding parks and recreation achievements in local communities. By cooperating with the Park Commission, the Alliance utilizes a quarterly newsletter, website, Facebook page and press releases to keep the public advised of its activities.

The Alliance for Morris County Parks is led by a dedicated group of volunteer board members from business, education, and the community. The Executive Director has been working in the field for more than 25 years and has a Master degree in Administrative Science with a concentration in nonprofit and government management. The resources of the Park Commission are made readily available for Park Alliance activities. Community support for parks is high and there are many who will support a special project or program.

In its many years of operation, the Park Alliance has supported the Park Commission in construction of a golf course rain shelter, a picnic shelter at a historic site, two dog parks, and an accessible playground. Program support has been provided for Native American events, volunteer recognition, National Night Out, school field trips for environmental education, and walkability/trail connectivity. Future planning includes another picnic shelter, outdoor exercise equipment, exhibit enhancement at an environmental center, and continuation of recommendations for a county wide trail system.
