THE FOUNDATION COMMITTEE’S MISSION

The Grand Central Park Foundation Committee (the “Foundation Committee”) is a committee of the Board of Directors of the Grand Central Park Residential Association (“GCPRA”). The Foundation Committee is designed to supplement and complement the functions of the GCPRA. The Foundation Committee enhances services and resources to the community through the sponsorship of programs, activities and events in and around Grand Central Park.

A COMBINED EFFORT

The Foundation Committee will recommend to the GCPRA contributions to a wide variety of innovative projects and enriching programs that will have an enormous impact on the quality of life of Grand Central Park residents, and by extension, the community at large. The Foundation Committee is expected to generate substantial funds on an annual basis. Those funds may support primary areas of focus, including, but not limited to, the following:
      A. Preservation and maintenance of natural areas, wildlife preserves and conservation areas
      B. Sponsorship of educational programs that contribute to the understanding, appreciation and preservation of the natural environment in Grand Central Park
      C. Recreational leagues, cultural programs, festivals and holiday celebrations, community computer network and recycling programs
      D. Social services, outreach programs and other charitable causes
      E. Enhancement and/or improvement of infrastructure within Grand Central Park

WHO BENEFITS FROM THE FUNDS?

All residents of Grand Central Park benefit from the funds. The Foundation Committee members shall determine areas of need and interest within the community and submit requests for funding to the GCPRA Board of Directors.

A PROVEN MODEL

While the Foundation Committee is on the vanguard, it is patterned after successful models in outstanding residential communities throughout the country including Sienna Plantation and Riverstone in Missouri City, Texas; Tuscan Lakes in League City, Texas; Spring Island in Beaufort, South Carolina; Summerwood in Panama City Beach, Florida; and Castle Hills in Dallas, Texas.
