Ottawa County Parks Foundation

Annual giving planning and implementation

The Ottawa County Parks Foundation bridges the community and nature, hoping to see the joy of nature woven into everyone’s lives.

After the formation of the Foundation, the Kennari team partnered to help create a donor communication and acquisition plan, offered guidance on staffing, and helped the Board better take on their role in fundraising. The Foundation has quadrupled their number of donors, activated monthly donors, significantly increased major gifts, and more deeply connected their donors to their mission in just a few short years.

“It has been great working with the Kennari team. Thanks to their guidance, the Foundation is celebrating our five-year anniversary this year. And thanks to the best practices and tools they have given us we are looking forward to continued growth for the next five years and beyond.” – Angela Miller-Niarhos, Foundation Manager
