Oswego Parks and Community Foundation
You show you care for your community in many ways over a lifetime - picking up litter, planting flowers in the park, helping groom a baseball field, planning a parade, volunteering time at the museum... When donating time and effort is not an option, you can still show your concern for Oswego's future by contributing financially to Oswego Parks and Community Foundation.
Patterned after Oswego's historic Ladies' Entertainment Society which raised funds to purchase land and create Riverside Park in 1885, the Oswego Parks and Community Foundation provides an opportunity today to meaningfully improve our hometown.
Foundation projects may pick up where municipal funding leaves off, or address beautification and recreation needs outside city government's capability. Potential projects in the parks include improved lighting and entrances, walking and jogging paths and better signage, along with other community aesthetic, educational and safety improvements.
Whether you're a retiree seeking a way to perpetuate your love for your hometown, or a young parent making a tax-deductible donation to help ensure an enjoyable community for your children's future, Oswego Parks and Community Foundation is the perfect repository for a gift that will have meaning for years - and generations - to come.
The Oswego Parks and Community Foundation now has a cookbook for sale at both banks and City Hall for $15. If you want to order by mail it is $20 to cover postage and handling.
Proceeds help to fund projects like the new Fall banners at Riverside Park and other park improvements.
