This corporation's specific and primary purposes are to initiate, sponsor, promote and carry out plans, programs, policies, and activities to further park and recreation projects within the jurisdictional limits of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District.


The Hayward Area Recreation and Park District Foundation (HARD Foundation) was founded in 1983 and is made up of private citizens to preserve the quality of park and recreation facilities and programs within the boundaries of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD). Our Board of Directors and community volunteers meet quarterly to discuss how to further invest in our community.


As a fundraising entity with the sole purpose of providing much-needed park improvements, recreation programming, and scholarship programs, the Foundation hosts a variety of special events and is active in seeking grants and other fund development opportunities to support HARD.
Your tax-deductible gift to the HARD Foundation, a 501c3 organization, provides important opportunities for families in our community. Tax ID 94-2901655.
