Make a Difference in the Monrovia Community

Become a Director to help shape and guide the MPWR Foundation and leave a lasting legacy

From the Covid-19 pandemic to the Bobcat Fire, the incredible value of our parks and open space has become even more clear. Monrovia has done a great job in the past to support our recreation programs, parks, facilities and open space. However, there is always more opportunity and need as the budget shortfall from COVID-19 has already caused cuts to existing park and recreation programs.

Because of the great need and recent events, the board of the Monrovia Wilderness Preserve Foundation, Inc, a 501(c3) independent foundation established in 2000, has changed its name to the Monrovia Parks, Wilderness, and Recreation Foundation (MPWR) and revised and expanded its mission to support recreation and community programs, parks, facilities, and open spaces in Monrovia.

If you would like to make a difference to MPWR and our community we would like to hear from you. To continue the growth of the new Monrovia Parks, Wilderness and Recreation Foundation we are looking for potential new board members to help shape and guide the Foundation over the next few years.
