San Diego Parks Foundation

The Parks Foundation was established at the end of 2018 to provide critical support to the City of San Diego’s Parks and Recreation Department. The Parks and Recreation budget alone cannot meet the entire needs of the City’s extensive park system. With a nonprofit tax designation, we can secure funds from private and public supporters to address Parks and Recreation’s funding gaps in programming and maintenance of neighborhood parks as well as implement projects directly. This support helps foster community health and connection by providing opportunities for exercise, spending time in nature, social interaction, and accessing resources.

SDPF mission is to improve the quality of life of communities throughout the city of San Diego through equitable investments in parks, greenspace, and recreational opportunities.

San Diego Parks Foundation partners with Giving Property to process real estate donations to benefit San Diego Parks Foundation and the community we serve. Our program takes any property type (land, homes, commercial) in any location so long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance or have deferred maintenance, it's no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, commissions owed and all closing costs. If you have a real estate asset that is costing you money or not being utilized, donating it is a great way to give back. You may even claim a significant tax deduction!
