Established in 2022, the Mandan Parks and Recreation Foundation is a permanent Community Foundation that will support our community for years to come. Earnings from the Foundation are given to support Mandan’s parks, recreational facilities and trail system. The Mandan Parks and Recreation Foundation works to improve our community and the quality of life of our citizens.
The mission of the Foundation is to construct, improve, and maintain park and recreational facilities within the City of Mandan; to make them as accessible and inclusive as possible for persons with disabilities; and to not discriminate against any person based on their race, color, religion, natural origin or sex.
Gifts to the Mandan Parks and Recreation Foundation are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of state and federal law. The organization is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, and educational purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
