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 Waukegan Park District.
Over the next two years, using the momentum from the successful second grade swim program, build a sustainable infrastructure within the Waukegan Parks Foundation and community which facilitates the ability of the Waukegan Parks Foundation to support additional programs aligned with its mission. Within five years, the Waukegan Parks Foundation will be known for its philanthropic leadership in the community.
