The Corps of Engineers manages hundreds of the most cherished lakes and rivers in America, and the surrounding Corps parks have considerable economic impact. Local cooperating associations, “friend’s groups,” are champions of these local recreational areas and play a significant role in helping the Corps provide improved services while strengthening local economies and elevating peoples lives.
These friends groups involve the community by providing financial support and hundreds of volunteer hours. That's good for everyone, especially when the alternative may require closing parks due to shrinking budgets.
The Corps Foundation supports friends groups in a variety of ways: by contributing to each organization’s mission and increasing capacity through funding research; by serving as a catalyst, a resource and a national umbrella for friends of local Corps Lakes projects. The Foundation can also help start, grow and improve the operations of these groups with direct support and coaching.
