Heart of the Park Donors

Shelby Farms Park Capital Campaign

SFPC set an ambitious goal to raise $70 million for Phase One of the Park's Master Plan, and we are proud to announce that we have completed our capital campaign goal! We have our fans to thank of helping us reach this ambitious goal. More than 380 gifts came through, including private donations and $140,000 raise through the public portion of the campaign. Together, we have raised $70 million for incredible enhancements at Shelby Farms Park!

The $70 million total includes projects already delivered, like the Woodland Discovery Playground, the Shelby Farms Greenline, the Wolf River Pedestrian Bridge, Gateway Signs and tree plantings in addition to the lake expansion and surrounding amenities.

Thank you to our challenge donors who gave during the month of January to help us reach the finish line! Names are listed in order of giving date:
