Donate to Silverwood

How to Support Silverwood

There are several ways to support the park and its mission:
  • Donate for a specific Silverwood project.  Right now (Fall 2022) the Friends group is focusing on improving the 9 old, outdated windows in the historic Stone House Visitor Center. New windows have been donated by Dave Nelson of Nelson-Young Lumber Company in Edgerton, and we are now seeking funds for the installation of the windows in order to finish this project. Our goal is to raise $10,000 and we are asking for your help. Learn more.
  • Make a donation to the Friends of Silverwood Park's general fund, for general program support
  • Consider a longer-term contribution through Silverwood's endowment
  • Volunteer at the park

Or, support the park annually by becoming an FoSP member! (below)

Become a Park Friend

When you become a member of the Friends of Silverwood Park (FOSP), you directly support the development and maintenance of a 300-acre public facility dedicated to recreation, cultivation, and education.

Dane County and the Friends of Silverwood Park (FoSP) operate Silverwood County Park as a public-nonprofit partnership. While Dane County owns the land, and decisions about the park must be approved by the County Park Commission, our Friends group is the community-based non-profit entity that drives the park's development and programming.

By becoming a member of the Friends of Silverwood Park you make a statement that you support regenerative agriculture, our local economy, and the young people who will ultimately carry the Silverwood Park vision into the future.

Your membership supports the general fund of the Friends of Silverwood, allowing us to pay for routine but key expenses, such as utility costs, trail mowing & maintenance, and upkeep of farmstead buildings.
