Support Alameda Friends of the Parks

As our national response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting municipal budget crisis in cities across the country amplify existing inequities in our communities, our parks and recreation system needs your help more than ever. Your tax-deductible gift to the Alameda Friends of the Parks Foundation has impact and leverage, helping us to support advocacy, fiscal sponsorship, park activation and youth scholarship programs that reach thousands of Alamedans each year. There are many ways you can give to the FOTP and gifts of any size are appreciated.

Most gifts to the Foundation take this form and it is as easy as writing a check or using a credit card to securely donate online. Checks should be payable to the Alameda Friends of the Parks Foundation – 2226 Santa Clara Avenue, Alameda, CA 94501.
