The Foundation for Geauga Parks (FGP) is pleased to announce that Preston Superstore in Burton Ohio has renewed their commitment and support of the work of FGP through the Foundation’s 2022 Business Partnership Program as a Lead Business Partner. Preston’s gift of $10,000 will help the Foundation continue their work of assisting parks in Geauga County to fund park and trail improvements and nature education opportunities.

“We could not be more appreciative of the Preston family’s commitment to the community and to our parks,” says FGP President Adam Henry. “The Foundation has some exciting initiatives coming in 2022, and this partnership goes a long way to sustain our work.” 

In 2022, FGP is launching a grant-giving program that is open to park entities throughout the county, be they township, municipal or county-run parks. The application process will be announced soon and available online.

Also in 2022, with support from the Cleveland Foundation Lake-Geauga Fund, the Paul and Maxine Frohring Foundation and other donors, FGP will fund the construction of a new Pollinator Garden Play Area in Geauga Park District’s Frohring Meadows Preserve. This initiative was established to help promote the importance of protecting habitat for our pollinating insects, birds and mammals. 

The Foundation for Geauga Parks was formed in 1990 as the Geauga Park District Foundation and was responsible for raising funds for several signature properties and programs in Geauga: The West Woods, Observatory Park, and the popular Nature Scopes Binocular Program for fifth grade students. After these great success stories, the FGP broadened their mission in 2015 to allow them the latitude to support any and all parks in Geauga, and therefore changed their name to the Foundation for Geauga Parks.

The Foundation Trustees are grateful to Preston Superstore as a Lead Business Partner. There are other opportunities for businesses to join the program and align themselves with a trusted name in park preservation in Geauga County. The Foundation for Geauga Parks Business Partnership Program has tiered opportunities for an annual partnership or as event sponsors. Learn more about the at
