Dear Friend of Wrestling,
The Illinois Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame has a strong tradition of supporting wrestling. Our mission is to preserve the culture of our sport, honor those who have greatly impacted wrestling and inspire youth to become involved in the sport. Sportsmanship, discipline, self-respect, commitment and integrity are just a few of the positive life traits wrestling reinforces.
Our valuable mission is supported solely by the generosity of donors. Your support will directly contribute to the legacy of those we honor and help to inspire our youth to take up the sport and excel in both wrestling and life.
Your tax-deductible donation helps us sustain our programs so that we can continue to preserve wrestling’s heritage, honor those who have given so much to the sport and encourage our youth to participate in wrestling.
The Illinois Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame is grateful for your consideration and support. This year, in order to simplify things for you, we have partnered with the IWCOA to provide you with an opportunity to make your donation online.
