Madison Parks Foundation: Announces $100K match for KNOW

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,

  1. 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.
