The Fairfax County Park Foundation supports the Fairfax County Park Authority by raising private funds, obtaining grants and creating partnerships that supplement tax dollars to meet our community's needs for park land, facilities and services.
The Adopt-A-Field program is a cooperative venture between the Fairfax County Park Authority and interested athletic organizations whereby these organizations assume the maintenance responsibility for designated athletic fields.
For over 50 years, the Park Authority’s Friends Groups have supported, enhanced, and advocated for Fairfax County’s parks, facilities, and services. In order to acknowledge and expand upon the added benefit of Friends Groups, the Park Authority’s 2013-2018 Strategic Plan includes a project to develop agency wide consistency in how the Park Authority partners with and supports all of our Friends Groups.
Mastenbrook Grants provide limited matching funds for projects in Fairfax County parks. Since 1999, more than 120 Mastenbrook Grant projects have been completed. There have been dog parks, playgrounds, athletic fieilds and shade gardens constructed as well as tree plantings.
Use your talents, energy and time to connect. With your help, we can do more! Far more than just doing a good deed, volunteering is a way to develop skills, learn about career options, make professional contacts, socialize and have an impact on your community.
