There are many ways for you to support the Preservation Foundation of the Lake County Forest Preserves—through a gift to the Annual Fund, sponsorship of an exhibition or event, a planned gift, or through a gift made in tribute to a friend, family member or in honor of a special occasion.
Although public funds cover the basic operations of the Forest Preserves, private donations to the Preservation Foundation help fund special projects that would otherwise not be possible.
Like our individual donors, corporate partners of the Preservation Foundation are helping to bridge the gap between what tax dollars can provide and all that our Forest Preserves can be.
Leaving a Legacy
Our donors are making their personal mark on the Preserves they have cherished for decades. You can give your gift in your lifetime or through your estate plan.
Gifts of Securities
Donating securities that have increased in value is one of the most effective means of benefiting charity while also obtaining considerable tax benefits.
Honor a loved one, mark an anniversary, or welcome a child or grandchild into the world while contributing to the beauty and enjoyment of the Lake County Forest Preserves.
Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and groups in a variety of settings. We encourage you to explore all the listed positions to find a job that fits best.
