DONATE TO THE CHALLENGE GRANT!
We’re in the home-stretch to meet our challenge grant goal!
FOLAR is currently fundraising to receive a $500,000 matching grant from The Cabell Foundation to renovate Ferndale/Appomattox Riverside Park in Dinwiddie County and transform the western entrance to the Appomattox River Trail. Located in Dinwiddie County near Petersburg and Chesterfield County, Ferndale Park has something for everyone – a playground, a picnic area, boating and fishing access, a historic canal, and trails. Our plans include a bicycle-pedestrian bridge spanning the Appomattox River from the historic canal trail at Ferndale Park to the John J. Radcliffe Conservation Area in Chesterfield County. We need your help to restore this historic outdoor destination and create an inclusive western entrance to the Appomattox River Trail. Donate to the Challenge Grant and your gift will be DOUBLED, doubling your impact. Make a lasting investment that will transform the trail and transform our region.
