Plan Your Gift

Is there a park, trail or facility that has special meaning for you? Is there a certain activity you really enjoy? We will work with you to ensure that your planned giving is invested in what you value most. Or plan for an unrestricted donation to ensure your gift makes the greatest impact. With an unrestricted donation, you enable the Morris County Park Commission to take advantage of unique one-time opportunities that would not otherwise be possible. Your investment is a personal way for you to serve as a steward that benefits both you and the County Park System.
