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.

The Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, working to enrich the park experience for all residents through donations, volunteerism, and more. A thriving parks system is central to the quality of life in Westchester, whether residents use the parks every day or just once a year. Since 1977, Westchester Parks Foundation has raised thousands of dollars to buy equipment, fund children’s programs, provide amenities and support the Westchester County Parks System.

For over 25 years, the Food Bank for Westchester (FB4W) has led the fight against hunger in Westchester County, serving 265 frontline programs that provide food directly to the 200,000 county residents who are hungry or food insecure. FB4W supplies 95% of all food distributed annually across the region’s food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and daycare and residential programs – delivering over 6.3 million meals to people in need just last year. FB4W’s collaboration with major retailers and corporations, and its expertise in food procurement, storage, and distribution, turns every $1 donated into $4 worth of fresh food provided for our hungry neighbors in Westchester County.
