The Mount Vernon Parks Foundation (MVPF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to improving Mount Vernon’s parks and recreational facilities and to expanding recreational opportunities managed by the City of Mount Vernon Parks and Enrichment Services Department. We focus the interest and enthusiasm of the community to support unfunded/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 learning and volunteering opportunities to improve both themselves and our community's parks and trails.

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

  • Fiscal sponsorship for community-led park-related initiatives

The Mount Vernon Parks Foundation is 100% funded by private donations & sponsorships. Please consider supporting us with a financial contribution today.
