Fostering Resources for a Vibrant St. Joseph County Parks

Established in 1989, The St. Joseph County Parks Foundation is a 501 (c)3 not-for-profit organization that assists the St. Joseph County Parks in land acquisition, park program enhancements, greenway connections and stewardship of natural and cultural resources.
