Frequently Asked Questions
Shouldn't tax dollars be enough to cover park facilities and programs?
Marion County taxpayers annually spend $45 for our parks compared to an average of $115 by five comparison cities of similar size and demographics. Private dollars help us reduce the tax burden and enable us to provide world-class facilities to Indianapolis and surrounding communities. Contact Jean Kraus for more information.
How does IPF raise its funds?
Through individuals, foundations and corporate support.
