Every Contribution is Appreciated
Protecting greenspace close to home is important. Experiences that the outdoors can provide inspires a personal connection with natural habitats that can enhance the mind, body, and spirit.
Individuals can support MetroParks with personal donations. Donations are tax-deductible gifts that are used to support programs and special projects. Please check with your tax professional to clarify tax deductions.
Giving through Community Foundations
Currently three accounts exist at the West Chester Liberty Community Foundation that benefit specific projects at MetroParks. Individuals can make donations directly to the Community Foundation if they wish. Funds are currently established for Wiggly Field Dog Park, Water Recreation Fund, and Playground Equipment Fund.
Legacy giving through a planned financial gift can also provide MetroParks with additional long-term stability that will ensure that future generations can benefit from an exceptional park experience.
By including MetroParks in your long-range charitable plans, you may find that there are beneficial tax advantages for your estate. Please check with your financial adviser or estate attorney to learn more about such gifts.
