Parks4Life How does it work? Parks4Life is a simple way for everyone who uses and loves Scotland’s parks to make a donation, large or small. We are delighted to have received a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to kick-start the development of Parks4Life. The grant provides pound for pound match funding for the first £500,000. This means that for every pound donated by individuals, businesses and trusts, the value will be doubled. If you gift-aid your donation, its value is further increased at no additional cost to you. Our ambition is to create a multi-million-pound fund which will help to keep Scotland’s parks in good heart for future generations to enjoy. The funds will be invested to provide an endowment which will provide a steady source of funds for our treasured parks. The endowment will be used by communities to support parks improvements, activities and projects; making sure our parks are kept healthy and happy for the future. Even a small donation can make a big difference. The Heritage Fund matching grant means that for every £10 donated, with gift aid added, the donation becomes a £25 investment in Parks4Life.
