Concept to Reality
A committee of community members, area leaders, members from Central Community College, and city officials was formed to move this project forward. The committee’s goal is to raise $1.5 million dollars for the construction of the playground and a maintenance endowment. The CCC Foundation is working with the committee to raise funds and pledges by the end of 2022 to complete this community project. The estimate for the playground equipment and construction is $1,146,997. The $250,000 endowment will be held with the Greater Grand Island Community Foundation for use by Grand Island Parks and Recreation to assist in playground maintenance.
By supporting this project, you will benefit a diverse group of individuals and the wider Grand Island community. Gifts of all sizes are welcomed as every dollar will work together to make this playground a reality. Naming opportunities are available. If you are interested in a naming opportunity, please contact Cheri Beda or Jessica Rohan at the CCC Foundation, 402-460-2151. Thank you for helping to provide a sensory-rich environment that enables children to develop physically, socially, and emotionally.
