American Canyon Community and Parks Foundation

What They Do:

Foster a sense of community by being outdoors and around nature. Advocate for nature-based play that connects families to nature. Support underserved youth by donating scholarship funds for camp and recreation programs. Raise funds for park and open space improvement projects. Provide hands-on opportunities for volunteers to improve our community. Provide unique outdoor-themed events.

The ACCPF was founded in 2014 by a dedicated group of volunteers. They have experienced tremendous growth. ACCPF has connected with over 1,500 children and community members to encourage a love of the outdoors. They bring volunteers together to improve the community. In 2016 alone, 180 volunteers donated over 825 hours of service to our parks. ACCPF collaborates with 20 other nonprofits, local businesses, and government agencies. In September 2016, ACCPF held the inaugural “An Evening at the Ruins” fundraiser to support parks and open spaces. From this they donated $20,000 to fund 1/2 mile of ADA trail improvement at Newell Open Space, and $15,000 for new park benches and picnic tables throughout the city.


ACCPF has made a significant difference by raising awareness and increasing participation in parks and open spaces. ACCPF has sponsored events including volunteer work projects and educational outings for children and raised funds for capital improvements for parks and open spaces. These activities help build community while fostering an environmental and civic ethic for future generations.
