Mission Statement: Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation is a local nonprofit that supports the parks through creating awareness, appreciation, and stewardship of local parks. TMPF accomplishes this through programming, advocacy, and fiscal sponsorship.
Why was your organization launched? Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation was created out of the need for support of local parks after the Parks Department budgets were cut 50% during the recession. Despite economic recovery, the Parks Departments are still running at a deficit that has forced them to cut several park programs.
What are the organization’s goals for this year? TMPF’s goals are to increase awareness and encourage park stewardship.
