The Cass County Community Foundation announced today that the matching opportunity for the Tower Park Pool previously set to have ended on May 31st has been extended through July 4th. The city has appropriated $400,000 but private funding is also being sought to complete the project. The matching funds are offered as $1 for every $2 raised.
CCCF President Deanna Crispen said, “The matching funds we have available for this community project are part of Lilly Endowment’s GIFT Phase VI opportunity and have specific guidelines for their use. We are hopeful that the full $100,000 available for this public-private project will be accessed and used to provide the great aquatic area our community needs.
Tax deductible donations may be made to the Community Foundation directly and marked for the Tower Park Pool Fund through the CCCF website, www.casscountycf.org or mailed to P.O. Box 441, Logansport, IN 46947. Gifts for the pool will be matched through July 4, 2015.
The Foundation Office is located at 729 E. Market Street and is open M-F, 9am-5pm. For more information, contact the foundation at 574-722-2200.
