Family Scholarship Fund

The Wilmette Park District recognizes there are community residents who may suffer, at any time, from economic setbacks that might preclude their participation in Wilmette Park District programs. The generosity of our users allows us to offer assistance to Wilmette residents experiencing temporary financial difficulties.

Donations to our Family Scholarship Fund can be made online. The paper Family Registration forms found in the Explore Guide, and at the front counter of all our facilities, have a check off box for Family Scholarship Fund donations. You may also send donations by mail to: Wilmette Park District, 1200 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091, Attn: Family Scholarship Fund.

Donations to the Family Scholarship Fund qualify as tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. The Wilmette Park District is a unit of local government. Your charitable deduction qualifies under Internal Service Revenue Codes Sub Section 170 (a)(1) and Sub Section 170 (c)(1).

Thank you for your generosity.
