Charting impact

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

Our goals are to get more people into the parks, and benefitting from the known health benefits of spending time outdoors in nature. Also to help make special programs in the Three Rivers Park District system available to persons of all abilities and backgrounds, in particular, under-represented communities and persons with disabilities.

We work to raise funds to help support special programs in Three Rivers Park District.

We partner closely with the District to determine which programs to support, then make financial donations to the district for those programs.

Our current program focus areas are Adapted Recreation Programs for persons with disabilities, and Explorer Camps for underrepresented communities

We are currently a small organization, and committed to growth. We conduct annual fundraising events and campaigns, and pursue grant opportunities when appropriate. Also we are working to grow and diversify our board of directors.

We are actively growing our board of directors, we're being deliberate and strategic about who we invite to join our board. Also we are growing the amount and number of designated donations we handle for the district. We are adding fundraising campaigns and efforts each year to help fuel our growth.
