Donations designated to our Youth Scholarship program help us provide opportunities for disadvantaged youth to participate in the many recreation, sports and educational programs offered by the Park District.
Donations designated to Park beautification projects and improvements, such as the restoration of the Garfield House in the Charles Jensen Botanical Garden and additional upgrades to the Bocce Ball Courts in Carmichael Park. These types of enhancements provide more recreational opportunities overall for our entire community.
Non-designated donations allow the Foundation flexibility to address emerging needs in our community, such as our 2021-2022 partnerships with DART Swim to provide summer swimming lessons and Project Lifelong to provide skateboard nights and mentoring opportunities for middle school teens. These donations also provide funds that may be used to support additional fundraising activities.
Donations of goods or services to support our programs and fundraising efforts, such as gift cards, gift baskets, or specific products or experiences that can be used in raffles or auctions to generate additional funds. Products that can be used during fundraising events such as food, beverages, or other similar products.
We need volunteers to assist with activities, such as greeting and educating the public about the Foundation during specific celebrations and events sponsored by the Foundation and the Park District, as well as other types of general assistance throughout the year.
