projects and campaigns

in your parks

We are here to support improvements in Cincinnati Parks across the city.

We support projects like capital improvements, invasive species removal, urban canopy expansion, landscape beautification, ADA accessibility upgrades, and much more. The projects we support align with the Cincinnati Park Board’s Master Plan and ultimately seek to uplift every neighborhood in the City. Below is a list of active  projects and campaigns with active fundraising.
