Inspire and advocate for the maximum use and sustainability of Prince William County parks, trails,
and recreational programs that enrich all lives.


Everyone has opportunities to play, recreate, and experience nature, which are vital to make Prince William County the place for all who seek an enhanced quality of life.

The Foundation

While our county parks and their programs are sustained primarily through funds provided by county government, when this funding is not available, the Foundation helps to enhance the Parks by providing the resources necessary to develop or sustain facilities or programs.

Developing and maintaining a top class park system that benefits all citizens, organizations and companies is a challenge. The Foundation provides a new source of revenue for our parks and lessens the burden of local government to fund these activities.

The Foundation achieves this goal by generating cash and in-kind donations, grants, planned giving contributions, and the donation of other financial and real property … and providing these funds for targeted projects within our park system. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors composed of long-time area leaders from business, government and community organizations.

Count Me In Scholarship

The Prince William County Parks Foundation Count Me In Scholarship helps support children in our community by providing funds to offset the costs for classes, camps and programs. The scholarship is designed to financially assist families who normally would not be able to send a child to a class, camp or program due to financial hardships.


Dedication Opportunities

Dedicate a tree or bench to a loved one, relative, colleague or friend through the Prince William County Parks Foundation.

Your tax deductible donation will serve as a tribute while also helping your parks! Parks, Recreation and Tourism staff will install a recognition plaque on every commemorative bench. Since plaques are not permitted for trees or other living landscape elements, your tree can have a special dedication necklace to hang around it.
