Be Amazing! Help Children Go to Summer Camp with The Amazing Give

An amazing event is about to happen! The Gainesville Arts and Parks Foundation is participating in The Amazing Give for the first time this year. The Amazing Give, sponsored by the Community Foundation of North Central Florida, is a 24-hour online fundraising event for local nonprofits, Thursday, April 22, 7am-7pm.

Research has shown there are endless benefits for communities with rich and vibrant parks, recreation and cultural facilities. This includes mental and physical health, reduced crime, community cohesiveness, increase in property values, an ability to attract new businesses, an increase in tourism and protecting our local natural environment.


In 2017 donors like you helped to support:

  • 250 children attended summer camp for free!

  • 352walls artists painted 4 new murals revitalizing urban spaces in downtown Gainesville.

  • Improvements were made to Ironwood Golf Course, parks in East Gainesville, and nature trails.

2017 Annual Fund Drive

This year our goal is to raise $10,000! We feel that with support from our members, friends and community partners, we can reach our goal. The GAP Foundation relies on donations from our supporters and friends to help.

  • We hope to give 200 summer camp scholarships.

  • Continue to serve over 500 teenagers in the Summer Heatwave program and 500 teens at our summer pool parties.

  • Expand the 352 Walls program and create a summer arts program for youth and teens in East Gainesville.

These are just a few of the many ways your generous support contributes to improving parks, recreation and cultural programs in our community. Your donation today will help improve the quality of life for our citizens and visitors to Gainesville. 

Help us reach our 2017 goal by becoming a Champion in the cause for better parks, recreation programs and cultural facilities!
