The Skokie Park District offers several Donation Programs. Each of these programs can be utilized to memorialize a loved one, honor a person or organization or to recognize a significant event such as a birthday, graduation, retirement, etc.  Your donation will benefit all people who use the parks and will serve as a living reminder for future generations.
