Introducing the Legacy Fund
Did you know that the Parklands is self-funded? In a usual year the Parklands generates 100% of its operating income through its operations and donations via the Centennial Parklands Foundation.
In response to the ongoing recurring funding needs of the Parklands, the Foundation is pleased to announce we will be launching the Legacy Fund later this year, with the aim to raise funds to support:
- Conservation of vital green space
- Community health and well-being
- Nature Education & Environmental Advocacy
An important finding from a recent Feasibility Study conducted in April last year to asses the viability of creating a Nature Education and Discovery Space adjacent to The Ian Potter Children's WILD PLAY Garden, was the lack of awareness regarding the growing need for philanthropic support of the Parklands. The Legacy Fund aims to bridge this gap and deepen the connection between the community and the Parklands.
Look out for the Legacy Fund online and during your park visits in the coming months for more information on how to show your support!
