PARC Foundation Helps Thurston County Get Outside for Parks, Arts, Recreation and Culture

From Thurston Talk:

Many of the outdoor spaces and exciting activities we have in Thurston County come from funding and partnership efforts supported by the PARC Foundation. Started in 1998 by James Reddick, the nonprofit’s volunteer board members work with the cities of Olympia, Tumwater, Lacey, Yelm and Tenino to raise and allocate funding for parks, arts, recreation, cultural programs and events.

PARC doesn’t operate programs. Instead, money is given directly to the foundation who facilitates its use directly with projects. One of many examples of their work is the $5,000 they gave to the City of Tumwater for recreation program scholarships with money raised from the Capital City Marathon. Another is the insurance paid for the luminary parade participation in Olympia. They also assist with fundraising applications and even just promote city programs and events via their PARC Foundation social media.


PARC Foundation Support Connects Communities [Like Yelm]

PARC is assisting Yelm to further transform its Yelm Prairie Line Trail by helping the city apply for a grant. An unfinished span, which crosses the Nisqually River on a rail bridge between Yelm and Roy, will connect the two communities to each other and those beyond. The path will also preserve local and regional history and mean safer hiking, horseback riding, biking and walking than on SR507.
