Supporting the Clemyjontri Dream
We believe playgrounds that use public funds should be built to be accessible to all. Clemyjontri provides an example of that vision for parks around Virginia and the United States. All of Fairfax County’s parks are well loved, and maintaining the special features of our unique playground requires more funding than our County can provide. Friends of Clemyjontri is an organization founded to raise money and provide financial support for the park’s needs outside of the Fairfax County budget.
Friends of Clemyjontri, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
All donations are 100% tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

In 2010, Friends of Clemyjontri raised funds to help purchase and install Virginia’s first Liberty Swing, the world’s only wheelchair accessible swing. The innovative swing also features a built-in seat for children without wheelchairs who still require a seatbelt.
In 2011, Friends of Clemyjontri donated 100% of funds devoted to the Drum Circle of Musical Fun. This interactive drum circle features many musical instruments and an audience bench for family members.
Each year, Friends of Clemyjontri hosts the annual Concert in the Park event to raise funds to sustain the park. This fundraiser has brought many incredible updates to the playground, and it helped with our 2014 renovation project.
In April 2012, the 2nd Annual Concert in the Park event raised funds to help purchase and install a permanent 900-square-foot tent at the park. The Big Top Tent affords much-needed shade for playground users as well as providing an additional location for event use and rental.
Our Community Partners
We truly appreciate all the wonderful support provided by our Community Partners, who so generously give to Clemyjontri Park through their volunteer services and donations.
While Friends of Clemyjontri, Inc. focuses specifically on supporting Clemyjontri Park, the Fairfax County Park Foundation is a partner Non-Profit Organization that attracts funding to meet not only Clemyjontri’s needs for parkland, facilities, and service, but also those of parks throughout our entire community.
