Endowment Fund

Ensuring the Legacy

While there have been many changes in the Mahoning Valley over the course of the last 127 years, Mill Creek MetroParks has endured as the living legacy of Volney Rogers’ vision; a place where people can enjoy the beauty and wonder of nature. That vision has held remarkable significance for generations of Valley residents and the park has remained an important part of their lives.


The Mill Creek MetroParks Foundation is working to preserve that vision by making the long-term care and enhancement of the park’s facilities and open spaces a priority. Making a tax-deductible gift of any size to the Endowment Fund can be transformational in the life of the park. Structured endowments can be designated to support the following areas: 

  • Fellows Riverside Gardens
  • Lily Pond
  • Wick Recreational Area
  • MetroParks Bikeway
  • Yellow Creek Park
  • Land Preservation
  • Ford Nature Center
  • Mill Creek Golf Course
  • MetroParks Farm
  • Lanterman's Mill
  • Education
  • Trails
