cccfThe Cass County Community Foundation is pleased to announce a new $100,000 match opportunity to support the renovations planned for saving the Tower Park Pool. The Logansport City Council appropriated $400,000 for the pool in February for the public-private project with a total cost of almost $750,000. Along with actual work on the pool and bathhouse, the project includes a water slide, handicap accessible tables and chairs and a pavilion which are not part of the city’s funding. Private funding is being sought to complete the project and the Community Foundation has responded with up to $100,000 in matching funds. The matching funds are offered as $1 for every $2 raised.

CCCF Board chairperson, Thillia Reynolds said, “Our board has been monitoring the issue of the pool and the number of people who voiced their dismay over losing the pool. We are excited that finally there is a plan to not only save the pool but to renovate it and make it useable for all. We hope that our entire community will step forward and donate to make this project successful.”

CCCF President Deanna Crispen added, “The board is very excited to offer this significant match opportunity and hopes the community will support the effort and raise the $200,000 to build this fantastic recreational space.”

Crispen added, “There is also an opportunity for a donor or business to secure the right to place their name and logo on the pool liner. Interested parties should contact Crispen at the Foundation.”

Tax deductible donations may be made to the Community Foundation directly and marked for the Tower Park Pool Fund through the CCCF website, or mailed to P.O. Box 441, Logansport, IN 46947.

The Foundation Office is located at 729 E. Market Street and is open M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, contact the foundation at 574-722-2200.
