Ways to Contribute

When you make a donation to the Palatine Parks Foundation, you are giving a lasting gift to the community. It is a wonderful way to give back to the community and help improve the parks and programs enjoyed by thousands each and every year. Help us help those in need and provide benefits for generations to come.

Donate Through Palatine Park District’s Registration System

Either in person or online, there is an option on the park district program registration form to add any amount to your registration fees to assist in providing scholarships to individuals who cannot afford to participate in recreational programs. Consider doubling your registration fee to sponsor an individual to participate in the program.
