Neighborhoods, homeowners' associations, sports groups, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to apply for the matching gifts program through South Suburban Parks and Recreation.
Through the program, the district will match funds to purchase equipment, complete a project or make improvements to a district park or property. South Suburban's matching gifts program also creates an opportunity for interested groups and individuals to provide a gift to the community.
Requests for funding must be in writing and meet certain requirements. Applications of less than $2,000 are more likely to be approved. Applications are due March 2.
The South Suburban Board of Directors has allocated up to $15,000 to the program for 2018. All projects approved will be completed in 2018.
Examples of eligible projects include development or improvements to playgrounds; general park improvements (e.g. benches, drinking fountains); special equipment to support group activities (e.g. scoreboards, athletic equipment); and beautification projects (e.g., trees, flower and shrub beds).
