Join us in preserving and enhancing the quality of Fircrest parks and recreation facilities and programming for generations to come.

Dear Residents of Fircrest, 

One of the things that has always made our city special is a powerful sense of community. That feeling, along with a tradition of neighborly involvement is why we created The Fircrest Parks and Recreation Foundation.  As a group, we decided it was the best path to creating an endowment that will support parks and recreational opportunities in Fircrest, forever. 


Together with our financial partners at Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, we look forward to growing a revenue stream that is separate from the city’s budget. Our mission is simple:


To preserve and enhance the quality of Fircrest Parks and Recreation facilities and programming with a focus on community, livability and equity.


To that end, we plan on awarding the first grants in 2022. 


As with all endeavors of this sort, we rely on donations of time, talent and treasure to make this work. We’ll talk more about that in the months and years ahead, but for now we want you to know that you are not alone in your love for this community. You are surrounded by like-minded people who want to make sure that every resident of Fircrest has great recreation opportunities for generations to come. And, there’s a place for you to get involved when you are ready.
