Anacortes Parks Foundation Community Grant Program
The Anacortes Parks Foundation, a non-profit public foundation serving the Anacortes area for 20 years, is pleased to resume our Community Grant Program. In support of community collaboration with the Foundation’s mission, APF encourages individuals and groups to apply for assistance in funding projects that enhance park, recreation and leisure-time opportunities on Fidalgo and Guemes Islands.
Doug Colglazier, APF Board President, comments “The Community Grant Program will help the Foundation continue to increase community awareness and our connection with people of all ages and abilities who enjoy the exquisite surroundings we live in. Our vision is that by collaborating with the community, the Anacortes Parks Foundation will continue to create and enhance recreational benefits for all to share.”
The mission of APF is to encourage private or public donations of land or money for the acquisition, development and enhancement of park and recreation facilities in and around Anacortes. The Foundation also manages park-related projects and administers charitable contributions for local programs. In past years, APF has awarded more than $26,000 in community grants for projects on Fidalgo and Guemes islands. The Community Grant Program is funded by the Puget Sound Energy leasing agreement with the Kiwanis Noon Club for use of land on Mount Erie.
