You can donate to Salem parks and leave a legacy for the benefit of future generations through the City of Salem and the Salem Park Foundation.
All gifts are tax deductible and allow individuals or groups to designate donations to enhance and improve the park system. Donations can be made in honor of a person or group. Donations can also be made to celebrate or recognize special occasions.
If you or your organization donates to a park, we will send a letter of appreciation. If the donation was offered in memory or honor of someone else, we will also send a letter of appreciation for a keepsake.
