Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund is in place to assist Palatine Park District residents or groups who need assistance to participate in Palatine Park District activities. The Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to Palatine Park District residents or groups in need. This fund has financially subsidized youth to participate in athletic, art, and academic programs (baseball, soccer, wrestling, dance, theater) and provided grants for performing arts attendance.


“Because of the scholarships that Palatine Park District has offered my family, despite the unemployment that occurred in our family, our children were still able to enjoy local programs which we could not have afforded otherwise. It is wonderful that our community voluntarily steps up to help families in need.”

“The park district foundation scholarship that my daughter received this year has allowed me to keep her in a sport that she loves, while not struggling to pay the fees. As a single mother of 3 I have to chose what extra activities the kids participate in, and without the scholarship I might have had to pull my daughter from something she really enjoys. The confidence and independence she gains from being part of a team is invaluable as a single parent..”

“I am a single mom of 2 little boys. Without the scholarships through the park district, my kids would not have the opportunity to play sports. I am very grateful for the assistance.”
