We Need Your Help!

"We Are Working Hard For You!"

The Wisconsin Park & Recreation Foundation Board of Directors is a group of current and retired park and recreation professionals, as well as and Commercial members just like yourself. We work hard to ensure the Parks and Recreation profession remains a relevant and essential part of our Wisconsin communities.

Funds generated by the Foundation have supported hundreds of professionals attending vital educational training, schools and workshops. The Foundation takes pride in assisting large groups of students who attend the WPRA Annual Conference. In addition to these grants and scholarships, the Foundation provides funding for Annual Conference speakers, The Leadership Academy and Foundation Ambassadors Club workshops.

How do we accomplish our goals? By teaming up with professionals like you. The generous donations of our Commercial and Professional Members is the only way we can continue to accomplish all these great things.

There are several ways to team up with the WPRA Foundation:

  • Foundation Ambassadors Club – Make a onetime donation or a reoccurring donation. Different levels of giving means you can get different kinds of "FAC SWAG” along with exclusive networking and education opportunities. Go to the WPRA website, click on Foundation and then click Donate. JOIN TODAY!
  • Participate - Be an active participant in the annual “Foundation Scholarship Golf Outing” by playing, sponsoring or volunteering.
  • Stop by and enjoy the fun - Our Trade Show Booth at the WPRA Annual Conference is the most fun you will have at Conference. Meet fellow professionals, play some games, win cool prizes and give a few bucks to the Foundation. It’s a great way to get involved and give back!

No matter what option of giving you choose, I guarantee you will feel pride in knowing you are helping to keep the profession of Parks and Recreation thriving in Wisconsin! Thank you to all who have felt that pride.

I look forward to sharing the WPRA Foundation Giving Experience with all of you in the future.

Yours truly in Parks and Recreation!

Kelly Valentino, CPRP

WPRA Foundation Board President
