Ways You Can #GiveParksandRec This GivingTuesday
Charitable contributions to the City of Greenville, as a government unit, are tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code when made for a public purpose. No goods or services, in whole or in part, were received in exchange for this contribution; therefore, the full value of your contribution is deductible for income tax purposes.
Youth scholarship fund
The City of Greenville strives to provide recreational programming to youth of the community by removing cost as a barrier. Financial assistance to youth is provided based on income and other financial circumstances to allow participation in recreation programs that encourage healthy lifestyles, promote self-confidence and teach life-long lessons.
As stewards of our parks, and for the benefit of all who enjoy them, we are committed to preserving resources and enhancing opportunities that will maximize the value of City parks, now and for generations to come. Donations help supplement existing funding sources, in order to preserve and protect the experience of using the parks, programs and activities for Greenville citizens and all those who visit our beautiful City.
City tree Fund
The City Tree Fund, established to enhance funding for tree planting in the city, has been very successful in supplementing Greenville's natural beauty. Through the fund, residents can donate money to have trees planted within a park, in a public open space, along a greenway, or in the public right-of-way on their street.
