The Apex Park and Recreation District Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose purpose is to support Apex Park and Recreation District’s efforts to deliver quality community recreation.
This is achieved through the efforts of a volunteer board of up to 17 members — Civic and business leaders with diverse backgrounds and a strong tradition of community service.
Throughout its history, Foundation members and friends have dedicated their time, talent and resources to help Apex Park and Recreation District expand and improve its facilities and programs.
Over the years, the Foundation has completed a wide range of projects—building park pavilions and playgrounds, purchasing equipment for programs, helping meet transportation needs for youth and seniors, renovating facilities, starting a memorial tree program, and much more.
Our Funding Philosophy…Lasting Benefits For The Local Community
The Foundation’s spectrum of projects is broad, but there is one important common theme: providing a significant and lasting benefit to the local community. Board members carefully evaluate each project for its potential to improve programs today and for years to come.
Since 1981, this late-summer classic has been one of the Foundation’s major annual fund-raisers. It’s a true community event, offering excellent visibility for sponsors and donors. We also have a Silent Auction the day of the golf tournament to raise additional funds for the Apex Foundation. A classy and well-run event, it consistently performs well year after year.
Come join us for a great tournament at the Marquardt/Miles pickleball courts and the Simms Street Recreation Center. 2018 was the first year for this fun event and it was a great success and gets better every year. Besides watching some good pickleball, come out and see the Simms Street Recreation Center!
2021 was the inaugural year of our Trick or Trot 5K Run and it greatly exceeded all expectations. We have the race, a bounce house, games, a pumpkin carving contest, and more. It is a real carnival. The 5K race is a family event but we have singles also. For the smaller kids we have a scavenger hunt with stations along the way to pick up Halloween treats. Just about all of the runners are dressed in their Halloween costumes. The race begins at the Apex Center and heads west on the bike paths while the Halloween Candy Hunt for the little ones heads east on the bike path. It is a lot of fun - Come join us!
There are so many ways to help! As you decide, keep two things in mind:
Your sponsorship commitment is welcome and vitally important. You can support events through monetary contributions, in-kind donations and volunteerism. Here are the benefits of contributing to an Apex PRD Foundation event:
Each year the Foundation selects one or more projects to support with the funds it raises. You can designate your donation for current projects, all of which go to support youth and senior recreation programs and facility improvements.
