Business Partners

The Oak Brook Chapter of Trout Unlimited cannot meet all its grass root conservation and youth education program goals without the support of business partners who donate products and services to aid our fundraising initiatives.  Merchandise donations support our monthly meeting raffles, annual Rod Raffle and December Holiday Party. Students in the Chapter’s Youth Fly Fishing Classes learn with donated rods, reels, and fly tying equipment.

We appreciate the backing of our Valued Sponsors, Business Partners and preferred guides and encourage our members to support their businesses!

Visit our Donate page to learn more about how you can help us achieve our conservation mission in the Midwest.

For more information on how you can become a Valued Sponsor or Business Partner, please contact Jim Schmiedeskamp.
