Become a Fundraiser

Tell the world why you #LoveParks and ask your friends and family to support your favorite park, project, community group, or Seattle Parks Foundation as a whole!
Peer-to-peer fundraising is a fun way for you to take action and raise money for the project, parks, and public spaces you care about. Our customizable fundraising pages allow you to tell your own #LoveParks story, in your own words, and easily fundraise through our online platform. Our fundraising platform handles the receipt management for you and offers access to a backend system that allows you to write emails, social posts and more to get the word out.

Common Fundraising Ideas

Dedicate Your Celebration

Have a birthday coming up? Getting married and want to skip the gifts? Retiring to enjoy more time outdoors?

Create a fundraising page to accept donations in lieu of gifts and circulate it with your party invitations or on social media. You’d be surprised who will want to celebrate you, in honor of your favorite project, park or public space!

Create Your Own

Turn your cross-stitching hobby, summer lemonade stand, garage sale proceeds – or any idea you can think of – into a fundraiser for projects, parks or public spaces! Simply create a fundraising page to accept donations in lieu of profit and inspire others to #LoveParks.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Join a Race

What gets you moving?
Organized races of any kind are a great reason to connect with family and friends, tell them why you’re participating in honor of your favorite project, park or public space, and inspire them to give in your honor!

Fundraising tip: share photos from your training with a link to donate to your page!
