Chicago Community Philanthropy

Peter Troost Monument Company donates engraved stone to Westchester Boy Scout troop 73

Peter Troost Monument Company has always believed in philanthropic efforts to  help those less fortunate and giving back to the Chicago communities that have helped us be successful for all these years. It is in this spirit that the company is proud to support a number of local organizations who work mostly to provide children’'s services, healthcare and education. Perhaps your family or someone you know has benefitted from the services offered by these outstanding groups:

  • YMCA
  • Boys and Girls Club of Bellwood
  • Elmhurst Hospital
  • Proviso West High School
  • Catholic Charities
  • Elmhurst College Scholarship Fund
  • Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists

We are proud of our philanthropic record and felt it was important for you to know we practice social responsibility and invest in the communities we serve.

The Peter Troost Monument Company Memorial Scholarship was established in 1999 for students of Proviso West High School. This high school is the public high school for residents of Hillside, Illinois, and the surrounding communities. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide monetary assistance to Proviso students who would like to attend college but might not have the financial ability to do so. These grants are awarded on the basis of financial need rather than scholastic achievement, although attributes such as work ethic, sense of responsibility, and citizenship are also important considerations.

Peter Troost Monument Company has been located in Hillside, Illinois, since 1920. It has always taken pride in supporting the community and its public schools. To date, Peter Troost Monument Company has awarded over $150,000 to Proviso West students. These grants are renewable for the recipients while they are in college. At a Senior Awards ceremony every year, a representative from Peter Troost Monument Company presents these scholarships to deserving seniors.
