SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY AND THE COMMUNITY'S YOUTH
Since its founding in 1992, The Walnut Creek Civic Pride Foundation (formerly the Walnut Creek Fountain for Youth Foundation) has enriched the lives of countless community members by raising funds and providing support for organizations that benefit the community and the community’s youth.
Through Walnut Creek Community Service Day, the Civic Pride Community Grant Program and fundraising for the All Abilities Playground at Heather Farm Park (2014) and the Splash Playground at Larkey Pool (2016-17), the Foundation builds a stronger community for families and youth. Learn more.
2020 COMMUNITY GRANTS AWARDED
Recognizing the increased need for services
across so many parts of our community, the Walnut Creek Civic Pride Foundation continued
its Community Grants program this year,
providing support to nine of our previous grant-recipient organizations so they could continue their work to preserve and enhance the quality of life in our community. Learn more about the grant recipients.
ANOTHER GREAT SUMMER AT LARKEY
The new Splash Playground at Larkey Pool, which opened in June 2017, entertains more than 20,000 people each summer. Thanks to all of the donors who helped the Foundation raise more than $90,000 for the Larkey facility. Learn more about how Civic Pride helped Make a Splash for Larkey.
