Glen Ellyn Park District Scholarship Program

Everyone in our community should have access to Park District activities. And, when it comes to kids and families registering for programs, money should not be a barrier. Because some residents are unable to take part due to financial hardship, we are proud to offer a scholarship program.

Scholarships assist low income residents by providing full to partial funding for recreational and athletic programs. The program serves a wide range of individual and family needs. Last year alone, the scholarship program helped more than 200 Glen Ellyn families.

Unfortunately, funds are at times limited. By donating to the scholarship program, you help enrich the lives of your neighbors in need. Your support may help a child attend camp, a senior stay healthy, a teen play travel soccer, and more. Help support the program by making a donation today.

Request Donations from the Park District

We help local non-profit events and fundraisers by donating passes to our facilities. Because we receive hundreds of requests each year, we are unable to fulfill all requests. Anyone requesting a donation must submit their request online. You can expect a response within two weeks of your submission. If approved, you will receive a small quantity of coupons/passes in exchange for promoting Glen Ellyn Park District at your event. Below are some guidelines we use to determine if we can make a donation:

  • Your organization should serve the Glen Ellyn community
  • Submit your request 3 weeks before your event
  • Request is for a 501c3 event or fundraiser with flyer included
