dollar for dollar matching gift up to $100,000 for donations made to the KNOW
program now through August 30, 2019.
The KNOW (Kids Need Opportunities at Warner) program supports the engaging
activities and essential resources being made available to the rapidly-growing
number of children who use the Warner Park Community Recreation Center
(WPCRC) on a weekly basis.
The Madison Parks Foundation will be having a fundraising event to further
support the KNOW program with the matching gifts on Wednesday, August 21,
- Sponsored by the Madison Mallards, the Say Yes to KNOW event will be
held at the Great Dane Duck Blind at the Mallards Stadium in Warner Park from
11:30 AM to 1 PM. An RSVP is required to attend.
“The KNOW program was designed to provide opportunities of positive outlets
for the northside youth” says WPCRC Director Terrence Thompson.
In addition to a safe place for kids to be with their friends to play games,
basketball or be social, the KNOW program has four core events: Teen Night,
Family Fun Night, 3 on 3 Basketball Series and the Youth Police Initiative.
“The Madison Parks Foundation is excited to support such a great program that
provides opportunities that really doesn’t exist on the northside. It’s a place
where everyone in the neighborhood can go and as a result has seen usage double
in the last 6 months.” says Bob Hemauer MPF Board Vice President.
