About the Foundation:
                        
The Fox Valley Park Foundation assists local youth so that all children have the opportunity to experience enrichment programs, sports and camps. Our mission is to make a meaningful difference in children's lives by providing them the opportunity to participate in Park District programs regardless of financial position. We open the door to a world of activities that enhance each child's growth and development. 
 
With your help, funds sourced through last years annual Golf for Kids fundraiser, the Fox Valley Park Foundation has awarded over $43,000 to nine recipients for 2018.  Here’s how they break down:

Summer Stage Costume Grant – $2,300  The annual Summer Stage production is for performers ages 6 and up to showcase their talents in a Broadway-like production. This grant subsidizes registration costs by removing the $35 costume fee, opening the door for more aspiring actors, actresses and singers to chase their acting dreams.

Heroes in Health Grant – $4,400  The Heroes in Health program provides veterans a way of transitioning back into their community and engaging with other former service members through fitness, training and physical therapy. This grant would increase participant levels from 15 veterans to 25 total.

Jesse “The Law” Torres Boxing Club Program Grant – $5,000  After-school program welcomes kids 8 and up while providing a safe environment and positive experience. Available four nights a week, with over 700 participants.

Sports Saturday Program Grant – $5,000  Sports Saturday is a free, eight-week program that gives children (grades 1-5) an outlet for active play during wintertime. The program is held concurrently at six elementary schools, and divided into morning/afternoon sessions based on age. Approximately 600 children participate each year.

Outdoor Adventure Club Grant – $5,000 This Red Oak Nature Center program helps 4th-graders in District 129 and 131 gain an appreciation of the natural world. Many students come from backgrounds where opportunities and outdoor play are limited. The OAC opens the door to new experiences while growing the students’ interest in outdoor pursuits.

Mighty Acorns Program Grant – $5,000 Mighty Acorns is an environmental education program that connects students to multiple, meaningful and sustained interactions with their local ecosystems. The program is designed for 3rd-5th grade students and can be modified for other grade levels.

Gone and Moved On! Program Grant – $5,000 To help schools meet requirements for the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Red Oak developed this educational program that is free to all schools and students within the District.

Summer Playgrounds Camp Grant – $5,800 Summer Playgrounds is a camp program that runs daily for six weeks in the summer at four different parks. Involving 150 kids each week, it is a diverse haven for children ages 6 to 11 that offers a setting for group play and camaraderie, social interaction and lifelong memories.

2nd Grade Learn to Swim Program Grant – $5,800 Drowning is 2nd leading cause of accidental death for children. Research shows if a child doesn’t learn to swim by third grade, chances are he/she never will. This program servers 30 new participants from a different school each month = 12 schools/360 participants annually.
