FGA Fall 2012 News letter
Since our September 2010 capital campaign
kick off, the Friends of Grant Athletics
(FGA) have come a long way. Your support and generous contributions will
transform the Grant Bowl into a state of the art athletic field and track and field
facility. The help of nearly 1,000 community donors and very generous
contributions by NIKE, Fields for Sport Fund, Autzen Foundation, City of Portland,
Portland Parks Sports Users Group, United Finance Co., Legacy Health,
Juan Young Trust, Portland Timbers and several anonymous donors have pushed
our campaign over $1 million toward the $1.750 million dollar overall goal. FGA is
pleased to have the support of Portland Parks & Recreation Commissioner
Nick Fish to convene community partners to support this project and to bring
this long awaited project to fruition.

The FGA is disappointed to announce that we are postponing the project until the spring of 2013, as the effort fell short of funding needed for the project this year. We are recalibrating our capital campaign strategy and will continue working diligently toward bidding and construction in 2013.
