Goals & Purpose

The Glenview Park Foundation was formed in 1996 with the goal of supporting the park district in the delivery of recreation programs, services and facilities as well as providing healthy recreational events for the Glenview community. The foundation raises funds through community partnerships and annual events including the Firecracker Classic Golf Outing and the 3 v 3 Youth Soccer Fest.

Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $2 million to build playgrounds, recast the Jackman Bear statue and build the surrounding plaza, provide community grants, and build parks and facilities throughout Glenview.  The Foundation Board is comprised of dedicated members of the community who have embraced the importance of improving the quality of life for our residents through recreation, leisure and open space. It is an investment in the community’s future; making Glenview an even better place to live.

Our Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
