Giving Tuesday – Keep Our Parks Green, Clean and Open to ALL!

Giving Tuesday offers a great opportunity for us to restore our parks & trails to pre-COVID status. During Quarantine, most of our group activities were curtailed, including regular cleaning and greening of parks and trails by neighborhood groups, corporate groups and individual volunteers. The reality is that beyond the excellent work of City employees, our parks and trails require dozens of neighborhood groups, several nonprofit organizations and hundreds of corporate employee volunteer days. We work with all of them.

Now that we are able to bring groups into parks and along trails, we want to make sure that we recruit, train and equip our Volunteers and Community and Corporate Groups adequately. This is where you can make a huge difference.

San Jose Parks Foundation Board Members have committed to match every dollar raised on Giving Tuesday up to $6,000. Your Giving Tuesday donation will be matched, doubling your impact.

San Jose's Parks & Trails were a key part of our lives during COVID Quarantine. But they will need some restoration and repair now that our communities are opening again.

Please donate today to our Giving Tuesday Restoration and Recovery Fund.

Lest we forget how beautiful our parks are, we've added this video created by a student volunteer from a few years back to remind ourselves.
