Phase 1 is complete!
Thank You, Eugene Civic Alliance Donors!
In August 2022, Eugene Civic Alliance finished the $30 million Phase I capital campaign for Civic Park, the Kidsports Fieldhouse and Market of Choice Field. Take a moment and let that sentence sink in. Wow.
With the incredibly generous support from all of you, the Phase I capital campaign for Civic Park has been completed and is now fully funded and debt free. ECA can’t thank you enough for helping us to get to this historic finish line.
Highlights of the race to the finish line for completion of Phase I saw final contributions to the $30M capital campaign delivered this past July, which gave ECA the ability in August to pay off a construction loan needed to get the facility built during the chaotic and challenging times of the pandemic.
The achievement of realizing a fully funded Phase I sets and secures the legacy of Civic Park to deliver high quality programs and host community events for years to come. This accomplishment is a tribute to all of you who gave in so many wonderful ways to transform a vision into a reality. Civic Park now has a new story to tell the world and you have helped us to write it. Here are some of the first exciting chapters:
- Since opening Civic Park in June 2020, 115,000+ visitors have visited Civic Park, the Kidsports Fieldhouse and Market of Choice Field.
- Kidsports, despite the pandemic, was able to serve 25,000 children and families through the fall, winter, spring, and summer by delivering healthy, active programs in a secure and safe Kidsports Fieldhouse and Market of Choice Field.
- Civic Park hosted community fundraising dinners and events, celebration of life services, Lane United Soccer League Games, Bushnell University soccer games, high school soccer and ultimate Frisbee teams, as well as adult basketball, kickball, pickleball, and volleyball. People, big and small, played and had fun!
Your contributions – from all 600 of you – have directly helped to change and shape thousands of lives here at Civic Park through the pursuit of healthy, active games, programming, and events that serve to enhance our community’s physical, social, emotional, and collective wellbeing.
