Friends of the Park

The three C’s of fundraising – capacity, commitment and connection – are a different way of explaining the three T’s of fundraising – treasure, time and talent. Friends of the Park members demonstrate all six and, through their generosity, allow the Putnam Parks & Pathways volunteer board to pursue the goals of the county’s five-year outdoor recreation master plan.

One hundred percent of membership, and gifts over and above membership, goes toward accomplishing the goals of the master plan. Members with buy-in are critical to success because members’ financial support is the only thing that allows the county to buy more land for trails, develop that land into trails, plan for new parks, and develop those parks. Members, the county truly thanks you for your support of the increased quality of life you fund.

In a county of nearly 40,000 residents, this year’s Friends of the Park 300-member goal should be easily attainable. Regardless of where you live, individuals can join in 2024 for $35. Families can join for $60. Gifts over and above membership go to endowment and again this year are matched $1-for-$1, doubling all gifts.

If you are thinking of becoming a Friends of the Park member, click below and join today. Support the development of more outdoor recreation venues, events and programs in Putnam County, and experience what your generosity creates by enjoying what you make possible. This website includes an events section, and a volunteer section, making it easy to regularly get outdoors AND get involved. Thank you for being part of the team. We look forward to seeing you!


Business owners are called on for so much support that we want to single them out and encourage you to SUPPORT THEM as one way to thank them for making life in Putnam County better because of their gift to Friends of the Park.
