Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin Announces First Major Project Grant
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin (CFCWI) awarded $50,000 for its first Major Project Grant Cycle to the Lake Pacawa Park Project in Plover, Wisconsin.
The Major Project funding from the Foundation will support the Lake Pacawa Park during phase 2 of their project. This includes the development of an all-inclusive playground and splash pad for children and adults of all ability levels. The splash and play area will be 6,000 square feet and designed with recreational activities in mind. The area will also allow for physical and occupational therapies to occur at the park. An ADA accessible kayak and canoe launch, as well as a paved walking path will be included in this project.
“The Community Foundation is proud to support the Lake Pacawa project through the Major Project Grant Cycle,” said Marlee Samuels, Grants & Scholarships Coordinator for CFCWI. “The inclusiveness this park brings to all ages and abilities will be a great asset to the Plover area and the greater Central Wisconsin community.”
The Major Projects Grant Cycle at the Community Foundation was a new initiative developed to fund up to one project annually that supports the growth and development of a community project that will make a major impact in Portage and/or Waushara counties in the range of $25,000-$50,000.
