Our Community Park Needs Your Support

Financial support for the Pettisville Park has never come from taxes, but instead from individuals making private donations, from Friendship Days (our every-other-summer fundraiser) and from fees to rent the Pavilion.

Park expenses ran $18,600 for 2014 and you can see in the breakdown (mailed to Pettisville School Residents in November) this was a typical “maintenance” year with no expenses for new projects or major improvements.

Financial Donations are Tax Deductible
Please consider a direct donation to PARC, Inc, to help keep the Pettisville Community Park open to the public. In 1978 the non-profit organization PARC, Inc was created to aid community efforts in building our park. Being a 501(c)(3) non-profit means your monetary contributions to the park are tax deductible. Checks can be made to PARC, Inc and mailed to PO Box 53205 Pettisville, OH 43553 or for more info email Treasurer@PettisvillePark.org.

If you’d rather donate your time to support the park, contact Chairmen@FriendshipDays.org to join our volunteers for the 2016 Friendship Days Festival. There’s always a need for a few more volunteers to help plan and put on the 3-day fundraising event.

Volunteers Steer Community Park

Pettisville's park is unique in that no taxes have been used in it's funding. The Park is a community project directed by a network of volunteers that serve for three years on the Park Board. PARC Inc is the non-profit organization created for the park's benefit.
