The FXBG FUNd Parks Fund
Jane Shelhorse, City resident and former Director of Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation and Events, established THE FXBG FUNd Parks Fund, formally called the Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation Director’s Fund, to benefit the city's park and recreation opportunities. Specifically, it is designated to enhance, expand or preserve parks and recreation facilities, programs and outdoor spaces to increase accessibility, improve social equity and provide opportunities for healthier, more fulfilling lifestyles for the citizens of Fredericksburg.
Anyone may support Fredericksburg parks and recreation opportunities by giving through the fund!

About Designated Funds
A Designated Fund enables a donor to invest in the precise cause or community issues that they care most about.
When you set up a Designated Fund with the foundation, you define its specific charitable purpose, even its beneficiaries, at the fund’s inception. Designated Funds are strongly focused: once you have thoughtfully determined the way you want to structure your fund, grants will be distributed in perpetuity.
The Community Foundation administers the fund without significant change based on the donor's initial instructions. When a grant is made, the foundation monitors how the funds are used to ensure that the use fulfills your charitable goals.
