Donations and Memorials

Family Scholarship Fund

Financial Assistance for Families in Need

The Wilmette Park District recognizes that families may suffer, at any time, from economic setbacks that can limit their children’s participation in our programs. Generous contributions from our community, Ouilmette Foundation and Memorial Tree program allow us to offer assistance to children who are Wilmette residents. We strongly believe in the value and positive impact of our programs, and are dedicated to maximizing accessibility for as many Wilmette children as possible.


Donations to our Family Scholarship Fund can be made online, or at the Administration Office or Community Recreation Center Front Desk. You may also send donations by mail to: Wilmette Park District, 1200 Wilmette Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091, Attn: Family Scholarship Fund. For more information, contact Michelle Parson at

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.
