Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation Program Assistance Fund:
RECREATION PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH AND CHILDREN
The City of Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation through the Parks and Recreation Department has established The City of Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation Program Assistance Fund. The City of Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation Program Assistance Fund was established with the understanding that there are City of Wayne residents who cannot afford the program fee(s) and are therefore unable to participate. The sole purpose of this fund is to find ways to give every child (16 or under) and family the opportunity to participate in recreation activities while providing a mechanism for equitable treatment and optimal accommodation for resident families in need.
The City of Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation Program Assistance Fund provides assistance, as funds are available, to qualified City of Wayne residents who might not otherwise be able to participate. Discounted program fees are available to those who qualify, on a sliding scale, for many recreation programs offered for youth and children.
The Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of programs for youth and children of all ages throughout the year.
While the Parks and Recreation Department works hard to stretch every dollar in providing services to the community, there is an opportunity for individual and business donations at a variety of levels. All donations made out to the City of Wayne Parks and Recreation Department in the name of the â€śWayne Parks & Recreation Foundation Program Assistance Fundâ€ť will be used to fund the unpaid portion of program registrations of eligible children (16 and under) and families.
Donations may be made through check payable to the Wayne Parks & Recreation Foundation, care of the Program Assistance Fund. Checks can me mailed to City of Wayne, Department of Parks & Recreation, 4635 Howe Road, Wayne, MI 48184.
