BECOME A MEMBER OF CARMICHAEL PARKS FOUNDATION TODAY

The Carmichael Parks Foundation is a non-profit public charity of volunteers dedicated to supporting the youth and parks of our community.   The mission of the Foundation is to enrich the quality of life for children, families, and seniors in our community by securing funds for recreational scholarships, enhanced programs, beautification and modernization of Carmichael parks and facilities.  A core role of the Foundation is to provide scholarships to local youth so they may participate in the many recreational programs offered by the Park District.

Since 2009, the Foundation has contributed $328,169 in support of the Carmichael Recreation and Park District and its programs. In recent years, the Foundation has supported youth scholarships for recreation and distance learning, family recreation opportunities including bocce ball courts, and park beautification including the newly remodeled Garfield House. In 2019, thirty-seven scholarships were awarded for a new swim and water safety program. During the pandemic, more emphasis was put toward family recreation and park improvements, since there were fewer recreational opportunities which required scholarships.
