Major or Multi-Year Gifts

There’s no better way for park lovers to invest in parks than to give to the Minneapolis Parks Foundation.

Since 2003, The Minneapolis Parks Foundation has raised more than $22 million to invest in transformative parks in Minneapolis. Today, more than ever, visionary park lovers are making a difference by helping to restore greenspace throughout the city, and especially on our Mississippi Riverfront. Your gift makes a difference in how millions of residents and visitors experience Minneapolis.

General Operating Support

Major or multi-year gifts to our general operating fund allow us to identify new opportunities and work in collaboration with communities across Minneapolis to create transformative parks.

RiverFirst Campaign

Gifts to the RiverFirst campaign help ensure that we fulfill our once-in-a-generation opportunity to create transformative parks and trails on the Minneapolis Central and Upper Riverfront. When complete, the RiverFirst Vision will represent the largest addition to the Minneapolis Parks system since its founding more than 140 years ago.
