The goal of the Friends of Fischer Farm Foundation is to raise $100,000.00 in donations and sponsorship in 2018. Funds are to be used to enhance the visitor experience at Fischer Farm.
The initial focus of the Foundation is to provide more learning-through-play experiences for families and individuals to enjoy while gaining an understanding of life on a farm.
The Foundation wants to thank you for your interest and attendance at Fischer Farm events and programs! We encourage that you take the time to come back to visit us and see what advances are being made at the farm. Our hope is to continue to offer a special experience to you and your family, each and every visit! Board members are present at all events and available to discuss ideas and/or hear suggestions and ways that the Foundation can partner with your organization, business or corporation.

These enhancements will be phased-in throughout 2018, as monies are raised, materials and equipment are purchased, and funds process through the Bensenville Park District. A multi-year Capital Campaign to provide longer-range, infrastructure and visitor utilization improvements will begin in 2019.
Friends of Fischer Farm Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation created to provide financial support and direct donated materials, services, and resources to the facility while strengthening the community knowledge of and relationship with Fischer Farm.
