The Friends of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County
, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, provides many ways to support the DuPage Forest Preserve District
and its work to restore habitat and conserve rare, threatened and endangered wildlife. Give a cash gift.
Gifts of cash are one of the easiest, most convenient ways to contribute. Donors can give by credit card online at dupageforest.org/donate
or mail a check payable to the Friends of the Forest Preserve District at 3S580 Naperville Road, Wheaton, IL 60189. Ask your employer to match your gift.
Some employers match donor gifts — or even a spouse’s — doubling or tripling the value. The Friends provides documentation to support matching-gift programs. Make a tribute.
