The foundation also serves as a vehicle to accept or acquire gifts, bequests, and legacies on behalf of the Bettendorf Parks and Recreation Commission.  The Parks and Recreation Foundation has a 13 member board made up of volunteers from the community. The Foundation has assisted in a variety of areas since they were reorganized in 1990. 
      The Parks and Recreation Foundation has helped enable a number of programs to be made available through the years with their annual Program Assistance Fund for families in financial need.  In addition, the Foundation has helped build shelters, playgrounds, art projects and fund various programs and activities.  These activities are funded by a variety of fund raisers such as an annual golf outing, writing grants and seeking donations.
