Looking for ways we can help you help the Texas State Parks? We offer a pass through donation program to individuals and organizations looking to improve the Texas State Parks system.
Some organizations wish to help a park of their choice but are required to make donations to non-profits rather than a state agency or within a specified time frame. Texans for State Parks has developed a process so that we may act as the fiscal agent for grants and gifts to parks and/or Friends Groups. For example, TfSP accepted a used mobile home for a second park residence at Ft. Parker State Park, as well as funds for relocation and repairs from local supporters. In such events, the funds will be designated as Restricted Income and shall be dispersed for the predetermined purpose. TfSP will also disperse the funds to vendors, suppliers, or contractors upon receipt of invoices that have been approved by the grantee when necessary. TfSP may retain a predetermined percentage of the donation for expenses. In such cases, the amount will be agreed on prior to the initiation of the grant and will be based on the time and resources required of TfSP volunteers or staff to administer.
To arrange a monetary or property donation to a park through Texans for State Parks, please contact Texans for State Parks, P.O Box 41480, Austin, Tx 78704 or email [email protected] You may also contact the park of your choice and ask them to arrange the donation through Texans for State Parks.
