Chances are you and your family have benefited from a Hendricks County Park, program, event or amenity. We are often asked the best way to give appreciation for having access to these natural spaces and education so we have created an easy way to show your support- become a “Friend” of the Parks Foundation of Hendricks County. 

The Foundation assists Hendricks County Parks and Recreation in projects, long-term planning, and events like the Summer Fun Run Series and Fall Colors Festival to ensure natural spaces and outdoor recreation for all our residents. Our next big project is Phase 1 of W.S. Gibbs Memorial Park in Washington Township. 

To become a friend, you can find us at a Hendricks County Parks and Recreation event, pick up a form at the McCloud Nature Park Nature Center or make a donation online. 

Friends commit to giving $10 or more a month or a make a one-time donation of $100 or more per year. To become a Friend online, head to our donation page. Then select the amount you would like to give. In the box “I would like to designate this to a certain fund”, select “Friend of PFOHC” and then click monthly if you choose or leave box unclicked for a one-time donation. 

Friends will be recognized on our website, get invited to Foundation events and feel pride in knowing their donation is helping local natural spaces for generations to enjoy. 

Thank you for joining us in supporting your Hendricks County Parks and Recreation!
