Positive, productive park energy -

that's what we're all about at the Chicago Parks Foundation. 

We are the nonprofit partner of the Chicago Park District, independent but collaborative in spirit. With 600+ parks throughout every neighborhood, we make it easy to get involved and give!

Ways to Give 

Tax dollars play an important role in our parks system, but they alone cannot provide all of the funds needed to maintain and improve Chicago's vital parks and park programs.

That's where we come in!

DONATE • ATTEND OUR EVENTS • DEDICATE A PARK BENCH • GET INVOLVED
