St. Charles Park Foundation
The St. Charles Park Foundation has been created and designed to receive funds, real and personal property for charitable, scientific or educational purposes for the betterment of the Greater St. Charles area. It is a local, independent, not-for-profit 501(c)3 foundation authorized to accept tax deductible gifts. Contributions to the Foundation are the perfect way for you, your family and your friends to support the Greater St. Charles' heritage for generations to come.
It is the intent of the Foundation to aid and encourage the St. Charles Park District, a special purpose governmental unit, in the acquisition, conservation, preservation, development of lands and operation of recreational programs and activities within the Counties of Kane and DuPage. With regard to the use of funds and properties received and accepted by the Foundation, the Directors will recognize and follow specific request or suggestions presented by the donor.
Although the most satisfying reward will be the gratitude of future generations who will enjoy, study and cherish the benefits your gift makes possible, there are, as well, substantial tax advantages which make charitable giving financially attractive.
For more information about tax-deductible contributions, please be advised to consult with your tax advisor.
