Consider making a donation to a local cause this Giving Tuesday, where your gift will directly impact the community!

The holiday season has officially arrived! After Thanksgiving and the days of deals with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday on Dec. 3 is the perfect time to channel the spirit of giving by donating to a nonprofit.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Want to see your donation make an impact?

Donate to the Lisle Partners for Parks Foundation's fundraiser for Community Park's new, all-inclusive playground to be completed in spring 2020.

While construction is underway on Discovery Playground, donations are still needed to help defray the costs associated with the project. Every penny helps to cover the cost of the equipment and construction, and minimizes the use of tax payer dollars.

This will be Lisle Park District's first fully-accessible playground, allowing children and adults of all abilities to play, learn, and grow, in a safe, welcoming environment.

On Giving Tuesday, the foundation will be kicking off a holiday Facebook fundraiser to get closer to the goal of $550,000.

On Dec. 3 only, Facebook will be matching donations to eligible 501(c)3 nonprofits, such as the Lisle Partners for Parks Foundation, on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The morning of Giving Tuesday, head to Lisle Partners for Parks Foundation's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LislePartnersforParks/ and find the Discovery Playground Holiday Fundraiser and donate!
