Mission Statement

The Kirkland Parks and Community Foundation works with the community to conceptualize, plan, fund and implement park and community improvements, projects and activities that improve the quality of life for the residents of Kirkland.

Description

Kirkland is known for the important role that parks play in our city. The community’s parks are a key part of why people choose to live in Kirkland and the city has done an excellent job of securing land for and creating useable parks as well as maintaining them at a very high standard.

This all being said, the people in Kirkland are creative & passionate and they have ideas for things that could be done in our parks to make them even better. That is why the Kirkland Parks Foundation was started in 2015. Since our founding, our goal was to be the voice for the community, enabling its people to raise funds for projects in the parks that have clear community support and contribute to their overall well-being.

Over the last five years we have funded projects raising more than $443,000 and have learned a lot in the process. One thing we discovered is that people in Kirkland have a lot of good ideas that go beyond just making our parks better; there is a great deal of energy and interest in the foundation expanding its scope to support community projects as well. (i.e. Santa’s Mailbox, KITE STEM project, etc.)

That is why we are changing our name and expanding our mission to become the Kirkland Parks and Community Foundation ("KPCF’).
