Austin Parks Foundation (www.austinparks.org)

The Austin Parks Foundation (APF) is a non-profit organization devoted to building public/private partnerships to develop and maintain parks, trails and open space in Austin and Travis County.  APF connects people to resources and partnerships to develop and improve parks, and fills the gap between what needs to be done and what our parks department can afford to do.  Since 1992, APF has initiated, promoted, and facilitated physical improvements, new programming, and greater community involvement for Austin’s 19,000+ acres of parkland.  Each year, APF generates millions of dollars in volunteer time, in-kind donations, and financial support for city parks.  Since 2007 APF has benefitted from a generous share of proceeds from the 2006-2013 Austin City Limits Music Festivals, which it has used to fund more than 121 park projects.  APF is grateful to the attendees of the Austin City Limits Music Festival for their role in helping the Foundation improve parks throughout Austin.
