Since 1958, the Tualatin Hills Park Foundation has served as the charitable arm of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, supporting Park District programs through fundraising efforts.
- Mission statement: The Tualatin Hills Park Foundation develops resources to ensure access to recreation for all Park District residents.
- Vision statement: Everyone’s life enriched through recreation.
Why does the district need our help?
THPRD excels at serving the public with available resources, but the needs of the community are greater than those funds. The Foundation exists to provide resources for special projects the district cannot fund. The Foundation can make the impossible possible and can accelerate projects that would otherwise lack funding.
The Park Foundation’s charge is to ensure that every person living within the THPRD boundaries is able to use the district’s facilities. We want to make sure that physical challenges or economic struggles don’t ever get in the way of people enjoying their park district.
Help us raise $1.5m for Champions Too Field
In conjunction with a 2013 announcement of a land acquistion in Aloha, the Park District announced its intention to build Oregon's first "Champions Too" field for disabled athletes.
The field would be built at a new 20-acre community park south of Mountain View Middle School; construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2016.
The park plan includes space for this synthetic "Champions Too" turf field, engineered specifically for athletes with developmental and physical challenges. It will be constructed if private funding can be secured by the Tualatin Hills Park Foundation and private donors.
