Friends of the Plainfield Park District Foundation

The Plainfield Park District Board of Commissioners formed the
Friends of the Plainfield Park District Foundation in 1985 to act solely as a fund-raising organization. The Foundation is a non-profit corporation that assists the Park District in its mission of providing recreation opportunities for all residents. The Foundation currently consists of 11 volunteers from the community that are active in fundraising to support their cause.

The Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life in the Plainfield area by assisting in the preservation of open space and enhancing recreation facilities and programs in the Plainfield Park District for people of all ages to enjoy. Its purpose is to:

  • Encourage the acquisition, development and preservation of park land in and around Plainfield
  • Appeal to donors and assist in raising funds and receiving property
  • Implement new and innovative projects
  • Assist private citizens, civic clubs, community organizations, and industry in their giving
  • Avoid duplication of function or activity successfully conducted by other organizations
