What if you could give someone a life changing experience? What if you inspire, motivate, and promote healthy learning? What if you could brighten a day?

Give Play

The Foundation believes in the principle that a connection to the natural world is fundamental to the health and well being of children. We want more children to have these experiences, so to that end we partner with Raleigh’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department to support outdoor activities for the children of Raleigh.

Each year hundreds of children who want to participate in the City’s summer camps and nature programs do not because their families can’t afford the fees. The Foundation’s need-based scholarships offer them the opportunity to engage with nature, and to have fun and build social skills along the way.

By underwriting scholarships, we boost participation and children develop healthy habits that last their lifetimes. Through your gifts, you empower children to explore Raleigh’s natural world.
