About the mParks Foundation
The mParks Foundation has donated more than $3,000,000 to Michigan communities to build accessible playgrounds and waterparks. They have purchased handicapped accessible hunting blinds, have made it possible for people in wheelchairs to get to the water when they are at the beach, and have paid for lifts for people to get in and out of boats, at some of our State Parks.
The goal is to make recreation available to all Michigan citizens, regardless of ability. Each of the partnering communities has a specific project or program that the monies raised will go towards.
