Loveland Parks & Recreation Foundation logo 

Established in 1983, the Loveland Parks and Recreation Foundation is a nonprofit entity that promotes and encourages the advancement of parks and recreation opportunities in Loveland.

The Foundation is governed by a board of citizens who meet on a monthly basis and facilitate the activities of the foundation. The main functions are to fundraise and provide a means for interested citizens to make donations in support of the services, programs and facilities of the Loveland Parks and Recreation Department.

There are many programs managed by the Foundation, including a very popular Youth & Family Scholarship Program, Bucks for Busses, Park Tree & Bench Donation Program and Cemetery Donation Program.

Supporters of the Loveland Parks and Recreation Foundation can take pride in their contribution to the quality of life in Loveland. Whether it is the sound of children playing in one of our many parks, the shade of a majestic tree or the satisfaction gained from completing a special class, the entire Loveland community benefits from the efforts of the Loveland Parks and Recreation Foundation.
