What is Mount Vernon Parks Foundation?

Mount Vernon Parks Foundation (MVPF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to improving the Mount Vernon’s parks and recreational facilities and to expanding recreational opportunities in and around the city of Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon Parks Foundation accepts tax deductible donations from businesses and private individuals wishing to support projects and places managed by the Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Department. We focus the interest and enthusiasm of the community to support unfunded and under-funded parks and trails projects through:

  • Fund-raising campaigns for specific parks and trails projects

  • Community grant programs that provide capital funding for capital costs for parks, trails and recreational programs

  • Supporting programs that provide Mount Vernon’s youth with work-learn opportunities that improve our trails and parks

  • Facilitation of new trail connections made possible through trail easement agreements with generous private property owners

  • Fiscal sponsorship for community-led park-related initiatives
