Foundation

Logan County and Friends of the Lincoln Park District,

 

We are excited to announce that the Lincoln Park District has started a foundation! The LPD Foundation will enable future development and support of projects and events that help preserve, restore and manage our natural and recreational opportunities. With the support of our community and through our memberships, we have been able to make great improvements to our facility and manage the day to day challenges of operation. The Lincoln Park District is looking to the future, we want to make sure our facility and our involvement in the community is maintained for years to come. The foundation may not affect you now but it could make a significant impact on your children or your grandchildren in the future! If you’re looking to show support in donating to the Lincoln Park District Foundation and to help build toward the future, please reach out to the Park District staff or contact our Director, John Andrews by email at,  jandrews@lincolnparkdistrict.com! We strive daily to make a positive impact on your wellbeing and we are looking for your help to guarantee the Lincoln Park District’s community involvement for years to come.

 

The Lincoln Park District is a non-profit organization which enables us to be exempt from taxation under Section 501(c) 3 of United States Internal Revenue Service. This enables our members and friends in the community to make donations to the Lincoln Park District which in return is tax-deductible. Our hope is that we can build our Foundation to protect all properties of the park district for years to come. With your help through donations we can make this possible.
