Findlay Charity of the Month – The Friends of Manito
Congratulations to The Friends of Manito as the Findlay Charity of the Month for April, 2022.
Findlay Jeep Dodge Ram awards a local non-profit $2,000 every month as part of their Charity of the Month program. The community controls who is chosen as the public nominates and votes for winner.
The Friends of Manito (TFM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports Manito Park in Spokane, which is ranked as the 13th most beautiful park in the US (by Tripadvisor in 2021).
The Friends of Manito were established in 1990 to assist the responsible preservation and improvement of the park in collaboration with the City of Spokane and the surrounding community through fundraising, volunteerism, and educational events.
Every year, TFM conducts a number of activities that benefit Manito Park while also enriching the lives of the community. Spring and fall plant sales, which generally attract over 4,800 passionate purchasers, are important fundraisers.
The Friends of Manito Park hold two plant sales each year (in the spring and fall) to raise revenue for Manito Park initiatives and events. The plant sales provide a diverse range of perennials, house plants, and handcrafted Home & Garden Décor.
Other institutions and corporations can also get involved in the thoughtful preservation of Manito Park through the Friends of Manito.
