The Collier County Parks and Recreation Project Star & Memorial Program provides opportunities for citizens and organizations to make donations and establish memorials to enhance the County's park system.
PROJECT STAR - Scholarships Towards Activities & Recreation
(download pdf Brochure)
Project STAR provides more than the satisfaction that comes with helping improve the health and wellbeing of children. It delivers a rare opportunity to witness young lives lifted over time.
Your contributions are not given directly to a child. Instead, your contributions are pooled with those of other contributors, to provide community-based programming for all eligible children in the area. Your generous contributions will help send a child to our Summer Camp Program, After School Program or any program offered by Collier County Parks and Recreation.
Donors interested in placing memorials in parks are asked to select the park in which the memorial is to be placed and the type of furnishing they wish to select from the pre-approved list. Cost includes the furnishing, 1 bronze memorial plaque, staff coordination, and installation.
Picnic Table $1,500
Donors will discuss their desired location with the Department staff at the time of application. Please note that not all parks have a need for a particular amenity.
HOW TO APPLY
Pick up a Project Star or Memorial Program brochure at the Collier County Parks and Recreation Department or contact us at 239-252-4000.
Fill out the application for your donation or memorial and submit it to Collier County Parks and Recreation for review and approval. Someone from the Department will contact you to review details of your application and confirm arrangements. Following confirmation, you are responsible for making payment in full to Collier County Parks and Recreation.
