Eva Clymer Memorial Fund Pushes to build a Sensory playground at Argonaut High School.
Heartfelt mission to build a safe play space for children with special needs is at the heart of the Eva Clymer Memorial Fund. Fiscally managed by the Amador Community Foundation, the Clymer Family established the fund in honor of their daughter Eva Clymer who enjoyed running and playing on swings.

These funds are for the expressed purpose of completing the Eva Clymer Sensory Playground, creating a safe play space for children with special needs.
Although Science is still learning about the changes in the DRYK1A gene, this newly identified condition can cause intellectual impairment, global delay, epilepsy, language impairment, subtle differences in facial features and a variety of other challenges.
All donations to the Eva Clymer Memorial Fund go directly to this project creating a sensory playground that can be enjoyed by children that are excluded from safely experiencing traditional playground activities due to challenges with hearing, sight, mobility and other physical functions that require special assistance.
“We have been so fortunate to have received a great gift from Eva’s preschool teacher who came up with the idea to build a memorial playground in her honor,” says Nicolette Clymer, mother of young Eva. “We hope that Eva’s playground will offer an opportunity for children of all abilities to run and to feel the joy a playground is meant to offer a child while giving parents and staff the peace of mind that their child is safe.”
We invite you to join us in this final push to create the Eva Clymer Sensory Playground through tax-deductible donations through the Amador Community Foundation.
