We are in the season of thanks. Despite the challenges and tragedies of the past year, many of us have much to be thankful for. Whether it’s family, health or a job, 2021 has given us the opportunity to take stock of what really matters.

One thing that matters is the role parks and recreation continues to play in getting us through the evolving pandemic. Now, it is nearly impossible to imagine life without parks and recreation. Never before has the profession’s contribution to our mental, physical and emotional health been more evident. What we once took for granted, we now know is fundamental and essential.

During this season of thanks, show your appreciation and celebrate the role of parks and recreation and the thousands of professionals and volunteers who make it happen by making a donation to NRPA on Giving Tuesday, which takes place November 30.

Giving Tuesday is an important day during which millions of people express their love for the causes they hold dear. You, too, can join them and express your passion and love for parks and recreation.

Whether you gift a one-time contribution, set up a monthly donation, give through your Donor Advised Fund, make a gift of appreciated stock or a legacy gift, you can help ensure that we have vibrant parks and recreation. What’s more, your generous offering will provide our professionals with the support they need to serve millions of users and participants who are adapting to the changing pandemic and recovering in the aftermath.

In 2020, 35 million individuals donated on Giving Tuesday. This year, don’t be left out. Stand out and join the global generosity movement by making a donation in support of NRPA’s work to elevate the role of parks and recreation; prepare the professional for the future; and create more healthy, resilient and inclusive communities through parks and recreation.

On November 30, make your gift by visiting or by contacting us at or 703.858.2163. We would be happy to discuss the many ways you can support NRPA’s work and parks and recreation.
