The annual Matching Gifts Program is designed to give interested groups and individuals an opportunity to provide a meaningful gift to the community. The program allows funds to be matched with District funds and thus result 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.

Information on the 2020 Matching Gifts Program will be available in spring 2020.
