Parent of a City of American Canyon Scholarship Recipient

"The scholarship program has been such a great help! It’s awful for my daughter to be cooped up at home watching TV. Now she’s been able to participate in swim, tennis, and basketball. These programs have allowed her to meet others, learn sports, and be outside. It’s been a motivational help."

"In just three short years, ACCPF has risen to be the most impactful community organization in American Canyon. From exciting educational evenings, popular daytime hikes, tireless board members and formidable fundraising abilities, ACCPF makes our community stronger, more active and engaged. I am proud to be a Lifetime Founding Member of such a consequential community non-profit."

"Early morning is our favorite time of the day.  Walking or bicycling the Wetlands Edge Trail is our favorite activity.    When we come back from our walk or bike ride, our favorite place to stop is the water fountain that ACCPF provided.  I get to drink from my own bowl close to the ground, while my mom drinks from the people bowl.  Three barks for ACCPF."

People in Park

Creighton Wright, City of American Canyon Parks and Recreation Director

"The American Canyon Community and Parks Foundation is an integral funding ally for the community.  Clearly, the Foundation provides funds to the City to enhance parks, programs and play in American Canyon.  In the last year, the Foundation has committed funds to assist with construction with the Newell Open Space Creekside Trail, funded most of the scholarships offered, and provided funding to build an outdoor exercise area near the Wetlands.  The Foundation helps us realize our vision of inspiring fun and creating community!"

Swimming Trainer with Students

"I work and go to school, so my daughter would just be at home. Recreation programs would be something for her to do besides sitting and watching TV. The (scholarship) program was amazing! It enabled me to put my child in swimming and dance; things I otherwise wouldn’t have done as a single parent.”
