Who We Are
The Indianapolis Parks Foundation was created in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
The mission of the Indianapolis Parks Foundation is to enhance the recreational, educational and cultural life of the Indianapolis community by encouraging and soliciting support for our city's parks system.
Our vision is that parks in Indianapolis will be quality spaces for all citizens to enjoy, thanks to the financial generosity of its people.
