Grant Giving Campaign Launch for the Ashland Parks Foundation
June 22, 2020
The Ashland Parks Foundation (APF) is launching its annual Community Grant Campaign. APF has a mission of enhancing Ashland’s quality of life by financially supporting its parks system. Grants are awarded to organizations making use of or supporting Ashland’s parks, trails or recreational opportunities.
Every spring, the five-member APF board reviews grant requests. This year APF will award $15,000 in community grants.
Any non-profit group, project or organization making use of or working toward improving Ashland’s parks system is eligible to apply for a grant of financial support. Requesting groups shall complete the online grant request form on the APF website, ashlandparksfoundation.com/apply.
In years past, scholarship and equipment grants have been awarded for organizations supportive of both youth and adults. APF is an especially proud contributor to organizations requesting equipment assistance or youth scholarships for baseball, soccer, water polo, swim lessons, art classes and more. Other grants have gone to help create a pollinator garden at The Grove, award scholarships for all ages through the Recreation Division of Ashland Parks and Recreation and to help fund an APR volunteer appreciation dinner, to name just a few.
The APF application deadline is Monday, July 20, at 5 p.m. Requests will be heard before the Ashland Parks Foundation Board meeting on Thursday, August 13, 2020.
