BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
In December 2015 and December 2016, The Howard and Nikki Applebaum Foundation generously made contributions to the Chino Hills Community Foundation with the restriction that they be used for special needs programs. Those contributions have accumulated in the Special Needs Fund totaling  $3,000.  At the November 13, 2017, Foundation meeting, the board voted to allocate the $3,000 from the Special Needs Fund to Los Serranos Park for the purchase of special needs play equipment. 

On November 7, 2017, the McCombs Family Foundation donated $20,000 to the Chino Hills Community Foundation “For use in its project of equipping the new Los Serranos Park playground.”  They made the donation in memoriam of four individuals who, as residents, played important roles in the early day development and sustaining of Los Serranos as a community: Harry Dixon, James Neller, Paul J. Ansley, and Christine Hoop. At the January 8, 2018, Foundation meeting, the board voted to approve the donation for Los Serranos Park.

At the March 28, 2017, City Council meeting, Council accepted a donation in the amount of $150,000 from the Chino Hills Community Foundation for playground equipment and as much of the play equipment surfacing as the funding would allow for Los Serranos Park. With the addition of the above donations, the total donation amount from the Foundation for Los Serranos Park is $173,000.
