Empower you neighbors with a donation today.
Your donation to our End-of-Year Campaign actually has a noticeable impact. San Jose Parks & Trails are maintained and managed by a City Staff that does a phenomenal job with limited resources. To preserve our parks & trails requires hundreds of Neighborhood groups, Corporate volunteers and thousands of volunteers each year.
When you donate, you support your neighbors who step up and take action. There are not that many who will take on protection, restoration or stewardship or a park. But for those who do, it is your contribution, large or small, that makes it possible.

Your contribution helped turn an ugly parking lot into a beautiful playground that has been used for years by hundreds of kids.
Your support made it possible for Ken Pyle to recruit a few hundred volunteers to help build the Pueblo Play Playground. The contributions of people like you enabled Ken to organize a community build. Ken inspired Ramona Snyder to help build and she was so inspired she led the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood to build another playground
Your support for Thousand Oaks Park helped create a magnificent natural trail in a previously-neglect enclave of the park. Your donation helped the long-term process of restoring the Japanese Friendship Garden, keeping the beloved Koi Ponds healthy.
San Jose Parks Foundation has many stories like this – of individuals whose vision and passion inspires others to join and where the entire community benefits.
You may have donated to one of those projects. This is what is meant when we say that San Jose Parks Foundation is a community-based organization. You are the community and your contributions enable us to find and champion people like Ken Pyle, Ramona Snyder and numerous others.
We ask that you make a contribution today of $120 (or $10/month) to our End-of-Year Campaign to support our ongoing Community Empowerment Program. You may give any amount, but this is the average gift we receive and with enough people giving, we can help support the wonderful people who are willing and able to keep our parks and trails in great health.
