Ways to Give

You can donate quickly and easily to MPWR using our online form on the right. Become an MPWR Constant Companion by selecting a monthly or quarterly donation from our Donate Now options on the right. However you give, your generosity will ensure we have the resources to make our parks and programs the best they can be for all Monrovians.

What Your Monthly Gift Makes Possible
Your gifts will be used to fund important programs and services such as:

  • Upkeep of our beautiful parks
  • Providing education programs to school aged children
  • Providing recreation to members of the community
  • Supporting our seniors with food and activities

How it works
Monthly giving is the best way to make a meaningful difference. Your recurring gift will be conveniently and automatically deducted from your credit or debit card each month and put to work immediately for our programs.  Change the amount, date or payment method donation whenever you would like or cancel at any time.

For more information or assistance with your current gift, please contact us at:

Do you participate in your workplace giving campaign?

Each year employees choose to direct a portion of their paycheck to us through workplace giving.  Via monthly payroll deductions, it’s easy to make a tremendous impact.

Your Company Campaign
During a workplace giving campaign, companies provide an opportunity for employees to donate to causes important to them.  Find out what opportunities you have to contribute to Monrovia Parks, Wilderness, and Recreation Foundation by contacting your campaign coordinator.

Matching Gifts
Did you know that many employers sponsor matching gift programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees?  Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and spouses.  By enrolling in your company’s gift program, your gift could be doubled and go that much further.

  • Submit a matching gift verification through your company on-line portal for Monrovia Parks Wilderness and Recreation Foundation or by our 403(c) EIN: 95-4839197
  • Note: Our foundation’s name has recently changed and may still show as “Monrovia Wilderness Preserve Foundation Inc”. Don’t worry – that’s still us!
  • Obtain a matching gift verification from from your human resources department.  Please email or mail your completed form and a copy of your donation receipt to:
