Funding of the the Magnuson Community Garden
Garden construction has
been funded through a combination of matching fund awards, the Pro Parks
Levy, and donations of funds, materials, and services. A group of volunteers
formed a nonprofit organization called the Magnuson Community Garden to guide
development of the garden and to facilitate a donor program.
The Magnuson Community Garden organization applied for and has received four awards from the Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund Program. Two $10,000 Small and Simple Awards for completing the design and construction drawings; a Large Projects Award of $150,000. These awards required a detailed plan, matches of funds and labor. A Neighborhood Outreach Award of $750 was received for constructing an information sign in the park about the project. The Childrens' Garden also applied for and received awards from private organizations. Information about building activities and the final reports to the city can be viewed on the following pages:
The Pro Parks Levy program provided $118,000 for the development of the Magnuson Community Garden. Information about Seattle's Pro Parks Levy may be viewed on the City of Seattle Parks and Recreation site, Pro Parks Levy. Information about the Community Garden is under the Pro Parks Sand Point/Magnuson P-Patch
In addition to pledges made by individuals toward the Department of Neighborhoods matching awards, there have been number of other contributors which are noted on the Recognition of Donors page. The arbor and the fountain in the Tranquil Garden were made possible through private donations.
Much of the garden was built through volunteer labor of many individuals and organizations. Many of those individuals and groups are listed on the Recognition of Donors page.
