Charity Done for FUN!
Can I donate funds to the city and receive a tax deduction?

Yes! According to the IRS, donations to the city are tax deductible as long as they are made solely for public purposes. See www.irs.gov/publications/p526 and view the department's informational charitable contributions letter here.

Programs and services to which you may donate include children's recreation and youth program scholarships, park development and stewardship, memorials, tree plantings, and much, much more. Capital campaigns are activated when the City Council determines support for a project.

How can I give?
Ketchum Parks & Recreation has over a dozen Trust Fund accounts that accept cash donations. You may donate funds to programs that help children's recreation, further public art and events, plant trees, or create memorials for loved ones. Cash donors will receive a confirmation letter which includes the city's tax identification number for your tax records.

Time is always welcome! We have a robust volunteer program for kids' programs, park stewardship, and commission service for arts and events, among other things!

Sure, we'll take stuff, too! Items donated to Ketchum Parks & Recreation help us execute programs and services. Let us know if you need to give away your outgrown ice skates or soccer cleats - we'll find a use for them!

Contact us and we can assist you through the process!
