Through a diverse group of highly dedicated volunteers, build on the strength and positive perception of the Waukegan Park District by supporting targeted educational, environmental and health-based programs that stimulate philanthropy in the Waukegan community, and further enhance the Park District.
Over the next 2 years, using the momentum from the successful 2nd grade swim program, build a sustainable infrastructure within the Foundation and Community which facilitates the ability of the Foundation to support additional programs aligned with its Mission. Within 5-years, the Waukegan Parks Foundation will be known for its Philanthropic leadership in the community.
Initiatives and Projects
The Waukegan Parks Foundation presented $8,000 to the Waukegan Park District to support scholarships and programs. The funds were raised at the 24th Annual Partners in Parks Golf Outing.
We raised $525 on Giving Tuesday! With your donations, we will be able to remove financial barriers to park district programs for the youth in our community.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
