The Stokes Endowment Fund

Since the 1970’s, Palatine Township Senior Citizens Council (PTSCC) has provided programs and services which support the independence and well-being of older adults and promote their participation in the community.

By giving to The Stokes Endowment Fund, your gift/pledge will help ensure that PTSCC’s interests extend into the future and provide much needed support for older adults in our community.

A gift of any amount is accepted and you can arrange to make a planned gift or a cash donation during or after your lifetime.

The PTSCC Heritage Society is designed to recognize those who remember PTSCC through a planned gift and for those who have given a one-time gift of $250 or more to The Stokes Endowment Fund.

  • Contribute a gift of any amount to the endowment for possible tax advantages.
  • Contribute a one-time gift of $250 or more to the endowment to be part of the Heritage Society.
