About Us

Desert Recreation Foundation works behind the scenes to ensure that all residents in the Coachella Valley have access to quality recreational resources, facilities, parks, and programs that serve today's needs and those for generations to come.

What We Do:

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Desert Recreation Foundation raises funds through individual and corporate gifts and grants to support a variety of efforts including:

  • The Desert Recreation Scholarship Fund which provides financial assistance to families and individuals in the community who may otherwise be unable to participate in recreation activities
  • The Adaptive/Therapeutic Sports & Recreation Program benefiting those with cognitive, developmental, and/or physical disabilities
  • Assists with the purchase of new park lands, program equipment, and other items for the District's parks and facilities
