EVANSVILLE PARKS FOUNDATION

The primary mission of the Evansville Parks Foundation, Inc. is to support and provide for facilities, improvements, and programs for parks and recreation in the Evansville area.

Although the EPF works closely with the municipal Department of Parks & Recreation, it is a separate 501(c)(3) entity, fully funded by charitable donations, grants and proceeds from our own fundraisers, such as Evening on the River and the Annual Phyllis Schreiber Golf Invitational. No United Way funds or local government tax money is received. The board of directors is made up of volunteers interested in bettering our community through park development and nature enhancement.

KEEP EVANSVILLE BEAUTIFUL

Litter abatementAt KEB we are passionate about reducing litter in our city. We believe one of the easiest way to make a place more beautiful is to clean it up! With this mentality, we have monthly clean ups at different locations around town. Come out and volunteer with us to make your city a safer and more beautiful play to work and play.

Recycling: As environmental stewards, we know the importance of recycling here at KEB. Not only does our KEB staff recycle, but we provide recycling programs and materials for other businesses or organizations.
