A new ball field is the goal of a fund raising campaign southwest of the metro. The Midlands Community Foundation (MCF) will match contributions made in the next few weeks.
The Cassgram reports the Louisville Ball Parents Association announces that MCF is offering a Matching Charitable Program effective now through January 5. With that program, MCF provides matching funds for ‘new’ contributions made to the Louisville Ball Parents Association Fund. Matching donations will be made on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a limit of $5,000 per donor, and subject to the maximum of $25,000 of matching dollars available in the aggregate for all MCF Funds.
“We are pleased to be able to provide our existing and new donors the opportunity to stretch their charitable dollars, raise awareness, and to make a difference in the community,” says Tonee Gay, the foundation’s executive director.
Donations may be dropped off at the Louisville City Office on Main Street or mailed to: Midlands Community Foundation, C/O Louisville Ball Association Fund, 945 North Adams Street, Suite 7 in
Papillion, NE 68046.
Louisville currently has one ball field that serves 21 baseball and softball teams during the summer months. Louisville’s 2013 state champion Jr. Legion team had one home game in Louisville due to limited field availability. Four communities are served by the Louisville summer ball program with 200+ youth from Louisville, Manley, Cedar Creek and South Bend utilizing the existing field. The ball parents association is working jointly with the city, school, and surrounding areas to construct a much needed second field. Donations and pledges are being solicited to help with construction of this project.
