Give Play Campaign Surpasses Year-End Goal

After a whirlwind of events, contests, donations, and prizes, our Give Play year-end campaign came to a close on Sunday. The initial goal for the campaign was $10,000. Once we reached the goal, two anonymous donors would provide matching gifts of $25,000 and $10,000, making the grand total raised $45,000! Thanks to our generous supporters, we met (and passed) our goal on Thursday! Contributions continued to come in over the weekend, for a grand total of $53,666 raised for Civic Park!

We can’t think of a more fitting way to end what has been an inspiring year at Eugene Civic Alliance. As we have moved forward in completing designs for Civic Park and launched the fundraising campaign, we’ve been amazed by the outpouring of support. We are thrilled to work on a project that means so much to the people of our community and we are excited about the new developments 2018 has in store for ECA and Civic Park.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making our Give Play campaign a success. Together, we are helping build a healthier, more playful future for Eugene. We’d also like to give a special “thank you” to our Give Play business partners:
