Ways to give back to Parks & Recreation
The Iowa City Parks and Recreation Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit affiliate organization of the Johnson County Community Foundation. The purpose of the Iowa City Parks & Recreation Endowment and Charitable Giving Funds is to serve the community by enhancing the quality of life for Iowa City area residents and visitors through the independent development, enhancement, and support for parks, recreation programs, facilities, and trails.
One of the best ways to support the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department is by growing our endowment fund. Endowment gifts are invested permanently and can provide security for the future of Parks and Recreation facilities and programs for generations to come. Plus, you as a donor will receive maximum tax benefits while giving to a cause you care about.
The Endow Iowa Tax Credit offers a 25 percent Iowa Tax Credit in addition to normal federal deductions for certain charitable gifts.
