Update: Success! Thanks to everyone who has contributed, we have now raised more than $5,000 to plant trees in the park.
If you missed out, please know that we always accept donations. We use them to keep our events low cost and towards park improvements.
We’re coming up on the 25th anniversary for Friends of Foster Park in 2020 and want to celebrate by planting 25 trees throughout the park. In order to do so, we are aiming to raise a $5,000.
The City of Parksville is supporting this effort and allowing us to buy the trees at cost (approximately $200 a tree — these are decent sized trees, not seedlings). They will plant the trees and make sure that they will all be well irrigated for the best chance of success.
However, we need your help to get us to our goal. Please consider donating today.
If you’d like a tax receipt, you can donate to us online via Canada Helps. If you’d like to donate via cheque or cash, send us an email and we’ll be happy to come pick it up.
