Support Recreation Scholarships
Bend Park & Recreation Foundation raises private funds to support scholarships for Bend Park & Recreation District programs. The Recreation Scholarship Fund provides access to recreation opportunities for children and people with disabilities.
When you "Give Play" - your donation directly supports recreation scholarships for people in our community.
In 2012, close to $200,000 was awarded in scholarships for children to participate in swim lessons, play on a sports team, be part of safe, active childcare, learn and grow in creative after school programs and much more.
Your donation makes a difference and is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
