July - Parks & Recreation Month
Annual Fundraising Campaign
Partner with the VRPA!
One of the goals of the VRPA in the next several years is to cultivate new relationships with outside organizations that support the VRPA’s mission and provide complimentary support and resources to our members.
We are interested in working with businesses, non-profits, state agencies, and others to develop new ways to support & provide to our members.
Articulating the benefits of the parks and recreation profession to individuals, neighborhoods and communities can be a challenging task. Through new partnerships we hope to help tell the untold stories and highlight the diverse benefits derived from parks and recreation in our communities. To accomplish this goal, we need partners interested in the Parks & Recreation profession as a whole that are interested in helping make a lasting impact to communities throughout the state.
