The Selkirk Parks Endowment Fund was established in 2015 to create a long-term and sustainable source of funding for the city’s parks, park amenities and programs. Modeled after similar endowments for successful parks, like Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg and Central Park in New York, the Selkirk Parks Endowment Fund will help ensure that Selkirk’s parks continue to offer the natural spaces, trails, equipment and other amenities that our citizens and visitors have come to expect.
Making a donation to the Selkirk Parks Endowment Fund and leaving a lasting legacy of nature, health and recreation is easy. In addition to helping to protect our parks for generations to come, your gift is tax deductible. You can make a donation today by doing one of the follow:

Your Donations Are Permanent Gifts and Leave a Legacy

The income generated from these investments is used to help fund the maintenance and enhancement of Selkirk’s park sites, services and programming.
