Endowment Fund


The Berrien County Parks Fund is an endowment fund that was established in 1988 to help the Berrien County Parks Commission take advantage of special opportunities that may arise in the future. Examples could include the acquisition of new park properties, the construction or improvement of facilities at existing County Parks, or the development of new programs. The Berrien County Parks Fund is managed by the Berrien Community Foundation, so contributions may qualify donors for both a Federal Income Tax Deduction and a Michigan Community Foundation Income Tax Credit.


If you enjoy the facilities and activities sponsored by the Berrien County Parks Commission, please consider a donation to this important fund. Contributions of any amount are welcome! For more information about the Berrien County Parks Fund or to make a donation, please contact the Berrien County Parks Commission Office at:

The Berrien Parks Fund is a component fund of the Berrien Community Foundation. The Community Foundation has authority to redirect the return of the fund if Berrien County Parks should ever cease to exist or if the fund is not consistent with a need in the community.
