Peoria Park District Foundation
Your generosity can make a difference!
The Peoria Park District Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports the work of the Peoria Park District. Currently, the Foundation focuses on enhancing and providing public educational, adult learning, and youth outreach programs and opportunities to the Peoria community, especially those taking place on Peoria Park District property or in connection with Peoria Park District leisure and recreation opportunities. Those donors who want to support the District’s education and outreach programming, including both the Moonlight Coalition for Adult Learning and the ELITE Youth Outreach programs, are invited to donate to the Foundation to achieve maximum tax benefits.
Beginning in 2018, the Foundation will work to emphasize the preservation and promotion of the value of parks and open space in our community. Parks are powerful… they improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work. Numerous studies have shown the social, environmental, economic, and health benefits parks bring to a community and its people. The Peoria Park District invites you to visit one of our many parks and enjoy the great outdoors!
In the meantime, your tax-deductible donation can help support our trail system, restore native prairies, AND support adults earning their GED, students learning respect and the benefits of hard work, and our youngest citizens learn through play. Wow!
We hope you’ll donate today!
