Matching Gifts Program

The Matching gifts program creates the opportunity for interested groups and individuals to provide a meaningful gift to the community. 

The program allows your funds to be matched with District funds and thus results in "double the money" to be spent for improvements to a park or playground, to add new plantings along a trail, or to buy equipment to enhance a recreation or sports program that is of particular interest to you. 

The Matching Gifts Program is designed to benefit a number of projects throughout the District, which serves residents of Littleton, Sheridan, Columbine Valley, Bow Mar, Lone Tree and Centennial west of 1-25, and portions of Jefferson, Douglas and Arapahoe counties.

If you have any questions, contact Mindy Albert at 303.798.5131 or MindyA@ssprd.org.
