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 16-member volunteer board—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.
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. A classy and well-run event, it consistently performs well year after year.
This event is a perfect package for fathers and families—cars, food, music! Free to the community, proceeds from the entries go to benefit the Foundation. It’s grown steadily since its inception in 2005.
Come join us for a great tournament at the pickleball courts and the Simms Street Recreation Center. 2018 was the first year for this fun event and it was a great success and will get even better. Besides watching some good pickleball, come out and see the Simms Street Recreation Center!

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.
The Foundation has established an endowment fund, setting aside monies with the eventual goal of a standing account with interest earned going toward additional projects. Your donations would support quality, affordable recreation for the future.
No matter what the amount, your help is deeply appreciated.
