Donations

Tax-deductible contributions benefit our entire community by enhancing green spaces and opportunities for nature education and outdoor recreation. Donations support natural resources, parks, trails, programs, and special activities, as well as provide accessibility and financial assistance to those who could otherwise not participate in park programs. For questions on donation opportunities, please call 763.559.9000 or email giving@threeriversparks.org, or explore the many ways to donate online.
