Our Beneficiaries




Westchester Parks Foundation (formerly Friends of Westchester County Parks) engages the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use, and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails, and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.

Westchester Parks Foundation creates and manages programs that unite people from all corners of the county to gather together, where they are inspired to care for, learn about, and enjoy our parks. Our programs are purposeful, engage the public, and enrich our park system. WPF makes physical improvements to our park system, recognizing that public action and private support must join together to secure the future of our park infrastructure and the enhancements that help our parks thrive. Since their inception in 1977, WPF has overseen the investment of more than $14 Million into Westchester County Parks.




Feeding Westchester is the county’s leading nonprofit hunger-relief organization that sources and distributes 95 percent of nutritious food, and other resources, to towns throughout Westchester through its agency partners, which include soup kitchens, shelters and daycare and residential programs, delivering nearly 9 million pounds of food and 7.5 million meals to people. Westchester’s collaboration with major retailers and corporations, and its expertise in food procurement, storage, and distribution, turns every monetary donation into fresh food provided for the community.
