The Cause


A portion of the proceeds from the Uncle Sam 5K will directly benefit the Palatine Park Foundation.

Palatine Park Foundation was formed in October of 1994 to assist Palatine Park District in its continuing commitments of service to the community. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. All donations that we receive are fully tax deductible as charitable contributions. Since 1994 the Palatine Park Foundation has:

  1. Assisted with the acquisition of Towne Square site and other properties.
  2. Provided funds for youth that enabled them to participate in the Palatine Park District activities.
  3. Began a partnering process with the corporate community.
  4. Incorporated the foundation as a not-for-profit entity.

“We are here for the kids” said Carl E. Arthur, Park Foundation President. “We want to do what we can for all kids so they don’t miss out. Spacer40
