Foundation for Parks and Recreation
The Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation, the fundraising arm of the Anderson Township Park District, was first formed in 1991 to fund projects that the tax base and revenue generation could not accommodate.
The mission of the Foundation is to provide funding to perpetuate parks and recreation in Anderson Township. The Foundation has a long history of contributions to the Park District such as the Juilfs Park office addition and tennis courts, the Kellogg Park concession/restroom building, the Beech Acres Park All-Children's Playground, and the Laverty Playground.
The Park District is continually seeking ideas and volunteers to help with current and future projects. If you have an idea or would like to volunteer your time, please contact the Park Office at (513) 474-0003. Click here to make a donation.

Honor someone special and support your community through the Playground Fund! Leave a legacy for the “Apple of Your Eye” on the new, farm-themed playground. Donors of $100 or more will have their tribute featured in a lasting, meaningful, and creative way on the sponsor Apple Tree.
A portion of each donation will be used to purchase and install a tribute acknowledgement; proceeds from the balance of the donation go to the purchase of play equipment, surfaces, structures, and landscaping associated specifically with the 2012 Juilfs Park playground renovation. Sponsorships of any amount are welcomed and will be printed in an upcoming issue of the Park District’s Park Guide.
Park District staff welcomes the opportunity to discuss gift-giving options with you or your company! Contact Scott Lahman: (513) 388-5091.
