People for Parks History
After losing 31,000 trees in 1977 to Dutch Elm disease, People for Parks was created to allow companies and concerned citizens to help fund the replacement of these beautiful elms.
People for Parks expanded its membership and mission of improving Minneapolis and its parks. Nearly three decades later, People for Parks continues its work as an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit citizens group. Please click on the history document at right to read about the over $2 million of projects provided to MPRB by People for Parks.
Click on the pictures below to see People for Parks' Form 990s for the past three years. Nonprofits publicly disclose their financial information by filing form 990 with the IRS. These Internal Revenue Service forms are filed annually and list assets, receipts, expenditures and compensation of officers (in our case no officers are compensated). They also include a list of grants made by PFP to the park board during the year. Forms for other charities can be obtained through the IRS, the charity itself, and the GuideStar website. You can find our 2011 990 and annual report here.
