In order to implement the later phases of the Master Plan Swift Cantrell Park must identify adequate sources of funding.
There are several funding opportunities for capital improvements that can be used alone or in combination to fund park construction.
- Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST)
- Grants/Federal and State Assistance
- Private Foundations
- Parks Foundation
- Friends of Swift Cantrell Park Campaign
Kennesaw, Ga (February 21, 2015) – The Swift-Cantrell Park Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the Friends of Swift-Cantrell Park, a campaign designed to aid the foundation’s fund raising efforts through providing ‘Friends’ with Special Foundation Deals in return for their contributions.
Visited by over 600,000 people each year, Swift-Cantrell Park is one of the most popular parks in Cobb County, providing locals with opportunities to play, picnic, exercise, skate, walk the dog, watch movies, walk/run the trails, and enjoy the outdoors. The Swift-Cantrell Park Foundation, a 501-C3 corporation formed in 2011, is comprised of a team of dedicated and community-minded individuals donating their time and talents to benefit Kennesaw’s Swift-Cantrell Park. Led by board president Greg Harris, the Vice President for University Advancement at Life University, the Foundation works to create awareness about the park’s needs and raise funds for park enhancements not funded by other means.
Participation options in the Friends of Swift-Cantrell Park campaign are available for both individuals and merchants. Depending on the level selected, individual contributors may receive attractive benefits including limited free use of park pavilions, VIP tent access at some park events, a special foundation t-shirt, and access to merchant specials on this website. Merchants can participate in the Friends program by offering a special deal to Friends members through the website.
Get additional information about merchant participation or sign up for the Friends campaign by emailing the Foundation here.
