Great parks build strong communities.
Charleston Parks Conservancy was founded in 2007 by Darla Moore and received significant start-up funding through the Darla Moore Foundation. Since then, the Conservancy has worked hard to diversify sources of financial support and to grow the amount of support year over year. Today, the Conservancy enjoys financial and other forms of support from a wife array of individuals, corporations, foundations and from our city government. This growing support has allowed us to complete capital projects in 24 city parks and to be actively involved today in the cultivation and nurturing of 20 parks. What remains unchanged is our commitment to transparency in the way we steward the money entrusted to us.
