The Anderson Foundation for Parks and Recreation is an independent 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to fundraising for the Anderson Park District. We are committed to improving both parks and services in Anderson. Established in 1991, our mission is to provide a direct and positive impact on the community by perpetuating parks and recreation through philanthropy, volunteer engagement and advocacy. We look to leverage the talents and resources of private citizens while seeking both government and non-government partnerships to provide spaces that inspire everyone to play, gather and grow!
We are always looking for people who are passionate about our parks.

An Anderson native, Doug is a trained medical scientist working in the Pharma. He moved back to Anderson when his son was born to share the outdoorsy community that he enjoyed growing up. Anderson Parks were his refuge, and now working to secure and improve these parks is a joy!
An attorney by training and a software entrepreneur by practice, Luke joined the Anderson Township community in 2018 after moving from Boston. Luke has two children at Summit Elementary and finds himself at Juilfs Park most weekends!
Nickie is a Project Manager who specializes in Continuous Improvement and Event Management. She has volunteered as chair for events in Anderson Township and enjoys the community these events foster.
