Twenty years ago, a small group of people passionate about protecting our green space for future generations, created the Pacific Parklands Foundation.
While maintenance and operations are publicly funded, there is a gap between what government provides and what our parks need.
In January of 2000, a group of committed entrepreneurs and corporate leaders came together with the common goal of bridging the gap. They established the Pacific Parks Foundation with a focus on raising funds for and awareness of the lower mainland’s regional parks.
“What people give their time and money to is an indication of what is important to them.”
Pacific Parklands Foundation supports special projects and partner groups in enhancing and expanding our parks system. We also support youth groups like catching the spirit, whose programs explore environmental stewardship and leadership, inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders.
Since the first donation from Morris Wosk and his son Mordehai Wosk in 2001, the foundation has contributed significant funding to projects throughout the regional park system and has created a track record of success.
Pacific Parklands Foundation will continue to work and strategize with Metro Vancouver, its park partners and donors to ensure a long and healthy future for our regional parks and our communities.
