Why Donate?

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District's Scholarship Program.

The Naperville Park District recognizes the importance of recreation and the health and wellness benefits it provides to people of all ages, both from a physical and mental standpoint. The Scholarship Program was created to give residents experiencing financial hardships, the opportunity to enjoy recreation programs and realize the benefits of physical activity and socialization opportunities that many people take for granted.

Why is the Park District Scholarship Program Important to Our Community?

  • In recent years, both School Districts 203 and 204 have reported significant numbers of low income and homeless students.
  • Physical activity is linked to better performance in school and increased emotional health.
  • The Park District is committed to providing solutions in the fight against obesity. This means making recreation programs accessible to everyone.
  • The Park District offers a wide range of programs in a recreational environment. Oftentimes, regardless of the type of activity, participants take away important life lessons or discover something that they’re passionate about. This can lead to greater fulfillment in life and increased satisfaction in general.
