Vision

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.Waukegan Parks Foundation Timeline

Save the date! GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, December 3. We need your donations 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.
