Park Enhancement Fund
Giving back to B.C.’s provincial parks
BC Parks is a provincial government agency (part of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy) that manages over 1000 parks and protected areas in BC and provides camping and recreation services to approximately 20 million park users annually. Although BC Parks is a government organization, a special account was created in 2008 separate from the provincial government’s revenue fund called the Park Enhancement Fund. Donations made to BC Parks for the Park Enhancement Fund are eligible for official tax receipts.
The Park Enhancement Fund is a transparent account where individuals and businesses can make donations to projects that enhance our provincial parks or the services offered in them. Money donated to the Park Enhancement Fund can go towards initiatives such as:
Funds from the Park Enhancement Fund can also be spent on many other projects or programs that enhance the services offered in parks and/or protect the conservation and heritage values of our parks.
If you would like to make a financial contribution to a specific project or park, contact BC Parks at: BCParksDonations@gov.bc.ca to discuss what kind of legacy you can leave for future generations.
