This video introduces you to the Forever campaign and the important work being done to secure the future of Forest Park.

On October 2, 2015, Forest Park Forever formally introduced the Forever: The Campaign for Forest Park's Future with the news that we had raised $116.9 million toward our $130 million goal. With the dual purpose of expanding the organization's endowment  by $100 million and raising $30 million for urgent capital projects, the Forever campaign will result in a much-improved Park and a stronger organization better able to care for Forest Park for many decades to come. Leading up to October 2, we were proud and grateful to announce two extraordinary gifts received in 2015 that supported this campaign: $30 million from Jack C. Taylor and family, and $20 million from Mr. and Mrs. James S. McDonnell III and the JSM Charitable Trust.  More information and project renderings can be found at
