The Montrose Recreation Foundation (MRF) appreciates donations to offer assistance to low-income, local residents so adults and youth can participate in Montrose Recreation District (MRD) programs, leagues, and other activities.  We have helped many families and individuals over the past few years who otherwise would not be able to afford to be involved.  Those who qualify may also receive assistance to take advantage of the MRD facilities such as the Montrose Recreation Center and the Field House. Through your donations, we aim to improve the overall health and happiness of Montrose.  Our belief is that recreation and fitness are for everyone!The MRF's fundraising also supports recreation-oriented capital projects at the MRD.

History of the MRF:

2016: The MRF completes fundraising for the new Montrose Recreation Center!

2017: Upon completion of the Rec Center, the MRF  turns its sights to fundraising for the scholarship program.  Grants were actively pursued and funds increased.  Over $20,000 was given out in scholarships to help individuals and families be able to participate in the MRD programs and sports!

2022+2023: Expansion continues with the Family Fee Assistance Membership Program (FFAM).  This program is designed to increase access for very low-income families to the Montrose Community Recreation Center.
