We are REALLY close to seeing the final construction pieces come to an end.  We couldn't have done this without the support of so many community minded individuals, companies, foundations, etc.  However, we realize there are still items on the list that were pushed back in order of importance as we wanted to make sure we had the money to do the construction right the first time.  Those items we are still looking for funds to help off-set expenses are:

  • Full Sound system
  • Shaded viewing areas
  • Nice practice field area
  • Additional landscaping
  • Trees lining east side of the complex to help add some privacy for our neighbors

If you are interested in helping off-set some of the above mentioned expense, please consider a donation to the Fort Madison Sports Complex.  Door cards are below or you can use the PayPal account at the bottom of this page.  All donations can be made out to Fort Madison Economic Development and are tax deductible.
