The Fun Fund

Girl in art classEvery family should have the opportunity to Experience It! regardless of income. The "Fun Fund" has been established through private contributions from the community to make recreational programs available to those in need.

It provides opportunities for children and adults in our community to take classes, attend camps or participate in activities that they would not otherwise be able to.

How it Works

The Fun Fund allows us to offer scholarships ranging from 25% to 100% of Parks, Arts & Recreation program fees.
