Planned Giving

The Recreation Division of the Culture, Parks, and Recreation Department has been fortunate to receive a variety of gifts and donations over the years. We appreciate your support; we couldn’t have done it without you!

Why consider Planned Giving?

Many groups, organizations, and individuals often look for a way to give back to their community. Your support is a meaningful investment in your hometown that allows us to bring life to the community.

Reasons you may choose to give back may include:

  • Memory of a loved one
  • Celebration of a special event
  • Community and civic pride
  • Service club obligation
  • Recognition

There are many ways that Planned Giving can benefit both large and small projects that are happening each year here in Greeley. The Recreation Division strives to provide excellent customer service at their facilities, as well as classes and programs that benefit residents of all ages, with the goal to help enhance your quality of life.

What are some ways these gifts are used?

  • Sponsor a specific event
  • Provide program equipment
  • Facility improvements
  • Upkeep of facility grounds

All gifts are tax deductible.

Partnerships and Sponsorships

The Recreation Division has been fortunate to work with many wonderful partners that help us reach so many of our goals. Our Partners and Sponsors receive both tangible benefits as well as the reward of supporting the local community by improving the quality of life for Greeley residents.

As a business or organization we realize that you may be looking for opportunities that enhance your corporate image while offering something of value for your organization and staff. We have many options to do this within the Recreation Division. Each opportunity provides a unique way to connect with the community.

Options include:

  • Event specific sponsorships (e.g. Father Daughter Dance, Discovery Bay Doggie Days)
  • Group sponsorships (Youth and Adult Sports)
  • Media sponsorships

Just to name a few!

Our goal is to establish closer relationships with companies in the area. Partners & Sponsors will receive a tailored package to meet your specific needs. The Recreation Division has built many positive relationships with many corporate and small business partners.

Each Partnership and Sponsorship extends for a full year. The value is negotiable.
