Supporting Local Nonprofit Organizations

The money generated from the sale of the bricks will go into the Park Trust Fund to help finance the completion of the Rickreall Creek Trail and a substantial portion will go to local nonprofit organizations.

The donor of the brick can choose an organization listed on the order form or apply to have a nonprofit organization added (see below). The donor may also choose to have all of the proceeds go to the Park Trust Fund. Up to $75 will be donated for every brick purchased; $50 will go to the local nonprofit as chosen by the donor and, when a symbol is added to the engraving of the brick, another $25 will go to that same nonprofit organization.

Nonprofit Fundraising

The City of Dallas has special programs for nonprofit organization fundraising efforts as part of our brick campaign. If you would like more information please email Nancy Woolsey or contact the City of Dallas Public Works Department at 503.831.3548. Organizations receiving funds through this program must be 501(c)3 nonprofit and approved by the City Manager's Office.
