Matching Gifts Program benefits residents and District

Oct 13 2017

Matching funds can help turn an idea into a reality. Sharing the cost of purchasing equipment or planting trees, helps maximize resources and provides more benefits and amenities for residents and patrons of South Suburban Park and Recreation District.

The District’s Matching Gifts Program allows organizations to partner with South Suburban to leverage resources by equally splitting the cost of requested projects.  This year's awarded Matching Gifts Projects are listed below.

This year South Suburban's Board of Directors approved $13,420 in matching funds. Information on the 2018 Matching Gifts Program will be available in spring 2018.
