--JOIN THE COMMITTEE: We are always looking for fresh faces and fresh ideas to help out on the Capilano Community Park Redevelopment Committee.
--DONATE: All donations over $20 receive a tax deductible receipt from the City. We have been awarded $375,000 in matching funds from the City. This means your donation will also be matched by the City. Thus far we have $154,000 from Capilano Community League, SuzukiSchool, and private donations. We need $221,000 more to match the City funds!
--EMPLOYER DONATIONS: Many employers are willing to make charitable donations through their employees. Ask your employer if they can make a donation to our park/playground project.
--PROVIDE THE COMMITTEE WITH SPONSOR LEADS: We are working to identify leads for Donors (Corporate and other). If you have some ideas please contact a Committee member to pass it on.
--SPREAD THE WORD! Talk about the park/playground redevelopment with your community friends and contacts. Perhaps those discussions will lead to support opportunities.
--GET EXCITED! This redevelopment will shape a community focus area for all ages, for the next 20 years! If we are able to reach our fundraising goal, the project will be fully realized with no key items excluded from the redevelopment plan.
