Why Give?

We are Raleigh’s home-town land conservancy and work in partnership with our city’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department to conserve natural lands for parks, greenways, and nature preserves and to provide under-resourced children with opportunities to get outside and explore through safe, active, outdoor summer camps and nature programs.

We also support a number of other programs and activities through our partners to promote active, sustainable, and healthy life-styles in our city, and keep Raleigh green.

If you want to empower children to get their hands dirty and learn about their world by exploring it (and not some digital, virtual version of it), then you should support the City of Oaks Foundation.

If you want to ensure that our city has beautiful natural areas for children – and for the rest of us – to explore and enjoy, then you should support the City of Oaks Foundation.

100% of every dollar contributed stays in our community.

Why give? Because we need a great outdoors for a great Raleigh!
