Make a Difference

The Madison Parks Foundation is dedicated to future generations of citizens through its efforts to preserve, maintain and expand our beautiful parks and open spaces in Madison. Our purpose is to acquire gifts through grants and other contributions to make park improvements as well as encourage the use of the parks. Our goal is to grow our endowment to enable us to match grants to worthwhile community projects.


Private support is essential in creating a lasting legacy for generations to come. Unrestricted gifts make the biggest impact because the donation is allocated to the area of greatest need in our parks. With your continued support, we will be able to expand our role in raising funds for park improvements, promote widespread recreational usage and overall advocacy for Madison parks.


We are proud to partner with local neighborhood associations or groups to improve their parks by coordinating payments, ensuring tax-deductibility and assist with those neighborhood groups’ fundraising efforts with those of the Madison Parks Division.


If you would like assistance to improve your neighborhood park, please contact us at info@madisonparksfoundation.org or call us at 608-266-4339.  For more details, please view our Parks & Fundraising Guide for your neighborhood group.
