Ways to Give Back to Palatine Park Foundation

Bequest, Wills, Trusts, and Estates

Whether giving today, in memoriam or sometime in the future, leaving a true legacy is about giving back to others to enjoy the fruits of life that you have been able to enjoy! A bequest is a meaningful way to make a lasting gift and leave a positive and true legacy. The Palatine Park Foundation is a great avenue to make this legacy a reality through various means of pledging current or future assets through your will, estate, securities, real estate or retirement assets. If you would like to discuss a gift or bequest for a specific purpose we would be happy to speak with you.

For more information, please email us and also consult with your financial adviser or legal counsel so your idea of a gift can provide the fullest value and related tax implications possible by law.

The Legacy Tribute Program allows individuals to honor loved ones by planting a tree or placing a bench in a Palatine Park District Park. To submit a request, complete the Legacy Tribute Order Form. Choose your preferred park location and a park district employee will contact you within three business days to confirm the details. Tribute Trees are planted in the fall, and Tribute Benches are placed in the spring. The program offers a one-year guarantee on all trees and benches, with prices determined by location, labor, and materials. Visit our Legacy Tribute FAQ to learn more details about the program.
