Welcome to Novi Parks Foundation

Novi Park Foundation Golf Outing-August 7, 2014

The Novi Parks Foundation raises money for the purpose of supporting park enhancements, recreational opportunities and scholarship programs for local children.  We hope to raise funds to provide support and assistance to Novi Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services as they work to maintain quality parks and provide high quality cultural and recreational programs.  The golf outing has been our big fundraising event of the year and a great way to help us achieve our mission.

Since its inception in 2004, the Foundation has provided:

  • More than $6,000 in youth recreation scholarships
  • More than $9.000 in soccer field improvements and lacrosse equipment purchases
  • $50,000 in contributions to Pavilion Shore Park development
  • $52,000 in support of public art projects

We are currently investigating new events to help raise funds to help support and enhance the goals and vision of the Novi Parks Foundation in partnership with the City of Novi.

Are you passionate about public spaces, recreational & cultural opporutnities and the Novi community?  Well so are we!  The Novi Parks Foundation supports the City of Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department through fundraising and advocacy.  Thanks to our many community partners and supporters, the Parks Foundation has provided matching grant funds for city park projects, provided scholarships to youth and funded various park enhancements over the years.  There are many ways to be involved and to support our efforts to make Novi an even better place to live, work and play...

  • Naming Rights and memorial tributes
  • Volunteer opportunities-- Board of Directors or event staff.  We are always ready to accept your gift of time and expertise
  • Donations, legacy gifting, or scholarship funding.
  • Special event sponsorships and in kind donations

Novi is fortunate to have so many diverse recreation opportunities and public spaces available for all ages, all activity levels, interests and abilities.  It is our value and belief that park, recreation and cultural experiences connect people in meaningful ways--connections to nature.. to others... to ourselves and our community.  Leisure time is serious business and we want Novi to continue to provide its residents with exceptional leisure time opportunities!  Contact us to learn more about how you can support and be a part of the Novi Parks Foundation!
