Donations & Gifts

Donate to Support Your Parks

With the generosity of our residents through their donations we’re able to sustain and improve our unique cultural and historical sites and green spaces. Your gift will help the Milwaukee County Parks protect and sustain these treasured spaces for generations to come.

Here are a few ways you can donate to your parks

  • Individuals
  • Businesses

For Individuals

 

Financial Donations 

Through The Park People, a 501(c)(3) organization, you have opportunities to make lasting tributes in the parks. Donations may be designated for the park system, specific parks, or specific programs. A planned gift may also provide you or your heirs with significant tax advantages. Gifts may be in a variety of forms, including funds, life insurance, and real property.

Make a charitable contribution to one of your favorite Friends groups. Many of the groups are recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations.

Gifts in Honor or Memory

Make a gift of a tree or commemorative bench in memory of someone special, or to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, wedding or holiday. The Park People will help you determine the style of bench and its location, or to select an evergreen, decorative, or shade tree for an appropriate setting in a special park. Benches include your personalized inscription mounted on the backrest, and trees include your dedication on a brass hang tag. 

 

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a creative way to support Milwaukee County Parks that costs nothing right now. Gifts can be granted through your retirement or life insurance plan or a traditional bequest through your will or trust. Planned Giving gifts are arranged through the Park People.

Program Sponsorship

Many of our supporters wish to direct their sponsorship to a specific park system facility, event or capital campaign that directly meets their corporate goals. For example, some of our partners have funded trail upgrades, playground improvements and signage plans.  Partners also support special events, such as the Summer Concert Series.
