Quincy was ‘green’ long before green was cool — and we have the park system to prove it. Green canopies, open spaces, and outstanding facilities and events have been bringing generations of families and friends together for over a century.
In order to preserve and build on this legacy, in 1996 a group of citizens established the Quincy Park Foundation, Inc., to help the taxpayer-supported Quincy Park District achieve its goals and provide even more opportunities and services.
There are many ways you can make a difference in helping Quincy maintain quality parks. Your time and financial resources are invaluable.
You can help financially through these giving options:
- Cash gifts
- On-line giving
- Planned Giving
- Real Estate
- In-Kind support
