Gifts & Donations

The Town of Oro Valley Parks and Recreation Department welcomes gifts and donations of any size or scale from individuals, civic groups, clubs or corporations.

Gifts and donations are an important revenue source to help restore and maintain the community and parks.  They can be used outright or held until adequate funds are available to fully underwrite a project or program. 

The Gifts and Donations Program is a prioritized list of equipment, supplies, and trees that a community donor could expect to see purchased, installed or planted within a one-year time frame.

Thank you for your consideration. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Please see below for examples of gifts and donations.  Other opportunities (such as equipment donations) may also be possible; please call the Parks and Recreation office at 229-5050 to discuss those items, and for any questions about the program.
