Destination Door County, working in partnership with the Door County Community Foundation, has launched the State Parks Grant Initiative to improve and enhance Newport, Peninsula, Potawatomi, Rock Island, and Whitefish Dunes State Parks. This $150,000 per park is divided into three parts.
Using room tax dollars generated by the visitors to our community, Destination Door County has already committed the first $50,000 to each non-profit “friends group” at our five State Parks. This initial funding will be utilized for modest upgrades and improvements to their facilities.
The second $50,000 will come from generous folks like you. The individual friends groups have been asked to identify a larger project that will truly enhance their respective State Park – and have been challenged to raise a second $50,000 from people like you.
Once each friends group achieves this challenge goal, Destination Door County will match the community’s contributions and add the third $50,000, completing the cycle.
By working together, we’ll generate $150,000 each for Newport, Peninsula, Potawatomi, Rock Island, and Whitefish Dunes State Parks – which is a total community contribution of $750,000 to Door County’s State Parks!
