There are a variety of ways you can support our mission from small to large. Your gift of money and/or time is valuable and we want you to be able to choose where that gift is spent if you wish. And if you don't designate a specific project or program, know your contribution will make an impact.

The Great Outdoor Foundation's mission is to provide high quality, healthy living for Greater Polk County through expanded open space, restored landscapes, greater recreation and outdoor education opportunities. Learn about the Foundation's priorities and projects in working toward that mission.

Your support truly makes a difference in restoring, improving and maintaining the natural resources that are critical to our community as well as providing access and education. Learn about the events that you can participate in to support the Great Outdoors Foundation's mission.
