3 Easy Ways to Give back to APF

Austin Parks Foundation relies on the generosity of our community to continue improving and maintaining our city’s parks.  That’s why we are always looking for EASY ways to get our neighbors, partners and friends involved in supporting Austin’s green spaces. And you’re in luck, because we’ve got three simple ways you can help us continue our mission to make our parks better than ever.
1) Ride|Austin Round Up
Ride|Austin was designed to be for the community by the community, and as a charity partner of this ride sharing non-profit, APF can benefit from your trips around town. By making it easy for people to ’round up’ their fares – Ride|Austin provides local charities with contributions on an ongoing basis. Simply choose Austin Parks Foundation as your round up charity of choice when you log in to the app, then, once you’re ride is finished, round up your fare to the nearest dollar and the difference goes toward making Austin’s parks healthier and more vibrant!
2) Amazon Smile

We know there are some Amazon shoppers out there, but did you know you can shop your favorite Amazon products AND support your favorite charity (us – duh!)?  With AmazonSmile you can help us grow and get the same great online shopping experience Amazon has always offered at no extra cost to you! AmazonSmile allows you to choose APF as your charity of choice, then get to shopping as you normally would. Once you’ve chosen us, Amazon will automatically send us a portion of the proceeds from your purchases at no cost to you. Check out the AmazonSmile FAQ’s for details, or get to shopping here.

3) EarthShare Texas

Many employers in town participate in EarthShare as a way to help their employees give back to environmental causes, and APF is a participating charity! If your employer isn’t already a partner, signing up is simple. Once your workplace giving is set up through Earth Share you can choose to designate your funds directly to APF, or split them up among all the participating eco organizations. Find out more on the EarthShare Texas website!
