The newly founded Moon Parks Foundation was created to enable the parks to accept donations from local and national organizations as well as township residents who have a mission to foster the goals of local parks such as ours. Our new 501c (3) designation has enabled us to participate in funding that in the past has been unavailable to us and that is distributed for both broad range and specific projects in parks such as ours.
The Moon Township Parks Foundation is organized exclusively for educational, community and general charitable purposes and will support the Moon Township Parks and Recreation initiatives. The Foundation receives its direction and guidance from the Moon Township Parks and Recreation Board and are directly responsible for facilitating growth, change and compliance in all Moon Township Parks. The Moon Township Parks Foundation reports to the Moon Parks Director and the Moon Township Board of Supervisors.
In addition to charitable donations, the aim of the Foundation is to each year support one of the Moon Township Parks and Recreation Board’s initiatives. The inaugural project of the Foundation is to support the development of the Moon Township Dog Park.
