Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds provide an easy and effective way to give back to the community through parks and recreation projects. By putting money, stocks, or other assets into one of these funds, you can recommend where the donations go, all while enjoying immediate tax benefits. It’s a popular choice for individuals and families looking to make a meaningful impact without the administrative burdens of managing a private foundation.

Your contribution shows your commitment to supporting vital community spaces, ensuring that our parks remain vibrant and accessible for everyone to enjoy. The Friends of Des Moines Parks is a certified 501(c)3 organization. We’d love to help you to customize and coordinate with your specific donor goals. Please contact Sarah Lohmeier ( to learn more.
