As the non-profit partner of Madison Parks, we help our community conserve, promote and enhance our parks. The Madison Parks Foundation is dedicated to future generations of citizens through efforts to preserve and expand our parks and open space in Madison. The purpose of the Madison Parks Foundation is to acquire gifts through grants and other contributions to make park improvements and encourage the use of the parks. The resources of the Madison Parks Foundation are not intended to replace or substitute for tax revenues generated for the annual ongoing maintenance activities of the Madison Parks Division. Gifts made without a specific allocation make the biggest impact because the donation is allocated to the area of greatest need in our parks.
