Support programming at Seattle Parks and Recreation

Each year, we receive more applications for financial aid than we are able to fund. With your help, we can offer scholarships to all youth, adults, and families who qualify for a scholarship. Visit Associated Recreation Council (ARC) to learn more or call 206-684-5177 to donate now.

Support your Park

Contribute to the quality of life in your neighborhood and invest in green, open spaces. Visit Seattle Parks Foundation to learn more about giving options and donate online.


Another great way to give is to volunteer. Team up with your neighbors, community group, organization, or co-workers. Parks will work with you to design a volunteer project your team will enjoy.

Through your support we can continue to improve and expand parks and green spaces in Seattle's diverse neighborhoods.

Can I donate ites to Seattle Parks and Recreation?

It depends (but in any case, thanks for thinking of us!).

(such as playground equipment)

Contact the appropriate Park Resources Manager (via or 206-684-4075).  The Park Resources Manager will evaluate the request and, if it seems feasible, will consult other staff (such as a landscape architect or structural engineer) as needed.

(such as sand for a sandbox)

Contact the appropriate Park District Crew Chief (via or 206-684-4075).  Because Seattle Parks and Recreation complies with all pertinent standards and safety regulations, especially for children’s play areas, we are restricted in what we are able to use. 

(such as board games, ping-pong tables, sports equipment)

Contact your local community center
