Supporting San Jose Parks, Trails, and Recreation Programs
San Jose Parks Foundation is continuing the campaign that began in December, when more than $25,000 was raised, part of it through a 2-to-1 match of Board fundraising.
After a truly amazing year, where San Jose Parks Foundation hit many fundraising and program milestones, the end of the year drive becomes critical to maintaining momentum.
