Launched in 2013, the King County Parks Foundation is focused on:
- Combating climate change by planting 1 million trees in King County by 2020
- Redeveloping the iconic Wilburton Trestle along the 16-7-mile-long Eastside Rail Corridor Trail
- Conserving the last best places in King County through the King County Land Conservation Initiative
The King County Parks Foundation is devoted to cultivating private-sector philanthropy in order to connect communities to regional trails, parks, and open space and to support the resiliency of King County’s parks and trails for future generations. The King County Parks Foundation is a component fund at Seattle Foundation and as a public charity, a Section 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
