Donate To A Fund

Designated
Donate Moorhead Community Fund - Natural Playground
The City of Moorhead and the FM Rotary Foundation are partnering to construct a Natural Playground in the downtown Moorhead Riverfront Park. A Natural Playground is a space with nature-derived play structures and spaces and as few man-made components as possible that allows people to enjoy space year round and embrace nature and the outdoors. This large Natural Playground at Riverfront Park will use wood, boulders, trees, hillsides, shrubs, logs and natural elements to provide open-ended, physically challenging and unstructured play opportunities for kids young and old. Check out the short video to learn more about the project at www.fmrotaryfoundation.org/page/natural-playground
Donate Moorhead Community Fund
This general fund supports Community Fund projects generally without specific projects outlined. This fund will support other projects that make Moorhead a great place to live.
Donate Moorhead Community Fund - Inclusive Playground
An Inclusive Playground is a playground for people of all ages and abilities to play together located at Southside Regional Park next to the Miracle Field. Just as Moorhead's Miracle Field has opened baseball to athletes with mobility challenges, we envision an inclusive playground where people of all abilities can play together. Recreation space with covered play decks, swings and sensory play equipment with ramps and wheelchair access would make this possible.
Donate Moorhead Community Fund - Public Art
Donations to this fund will be used to create public art throughout the City of Moorhead. There are exciting public art projects planned for Moorhead's downtown area and residential neighborhoods.
Donate Moorhead Community Fund - River Corridor and Trails
This fund provides the opportunity to donate for recreation amenities such as benches, message boards, decorative lighting, art/sculpture, and historical markers along the Moorhead River Corridor. The City of Moorhead continues to pursue grant opportunities to assist with trail construction and is working with many community partners for river corridor improvements. For more information on the River Corridor Trails and funding status view the River Corridor Trails Segment Map at www.cityofmoorhead.com/about-the-city/river-corridor
Donate Moorhead Community Fund - Youth Scholarship Fund
Moorhead Parks and Recreation currently offers underprivileged Moorhead youth up to three program scholarships annually. Donations to the Youth Scholarship Fund allow more children to participate, enriching their experiences by boosting confidence, supporting active play, and encouraging the growth of friendship and community pride.
