How Can I Contribute to the Friends of Bettendorf Parks Foundation?

To grow the Friends of Bettendorf Parks Foundation's ability to support programs and improve recreational facilities, an endowment fund has been established with the Quad Cities Community Foundation. The endowment fund is entirely separate from City control and provides a permanent vehicle for charitable contributions and financial stability for the foundation and its activities. 

For more information on making a gift to the endowment, contact Kimberly Radcliff at, or call (563) 344-4011.
