Peoria Park District Foundation

Your generosity can make a difference!

Support the Park District

Did you know that the Peoria Park District has a Foundation? The programs we offer, the trails, golf courses, and the parks you enjoy would not be possible without the Foundation. In keeping with the Peoria Park District’s mission, the Foundation focuses on enhancing and providing resources to ensure that Peoria remains a healthy and vibrant community.

This year, the Park District is celebrating its 125th year. As we have celebrated this remarkable milestone, we are looking to the future. Specifically, we are focusing on the sustainability of our parks so that future generations can enjoy them. We can’t do that without your help – through a gift to the Park District Foundation, you can make an impact on the lives of the members of the Peoria community. Whether your gift is $25 or $250, each gift makes a difference. Some examples of areas you can impact are:

  • Help ensure the sustainability of our parks, trails, and green spaces through our Legacy Fund.
  • Scholarships – help make the dream of playing football, soccer, or attending camp a reality for a child
  • Help adults who are working hard towards earning their GED through our educational programs
  • Help kids learn of the power of play
  • Help restore our prairie land

There are so many ways you can make a difference! Still undecided? An unrestricted gift helps put your dollars to use where they are needed the most.

To make giving even easier, we are offering the ability to make monthly or quarterly payments! You may also wish to remember the Peoria Park District in your will or estate. District staff are happy to work with you should be interested in this option. We can provide information about options that you can discuss with your professional advisors.
