2020 Phase 2 PFSP March Madness Campaign.

2020 Phase 2 PFSP March Madness Campaign and open Letter.

We are pulling out all the stops for the final push for phase 2 of the Portage Family Skate Park. With the help of you and a few of our friends we can make this happen over the next month. A not so private donor and super supporter of the PFSP has stepped up to donate $3,500 and wants to challenge 2 other families or businesses to match, and to cover the cost of the increase of phase 2 which is $10,000.

Once the June and Edward Lenz charitable trust is matched with only the remaining $15,000 of the $25,000 grant, we would have tentatively secured the money needed to proceed with building in the summer of 2020. Think it’s odd the warm up in Wisconsin? It’s the giving season and the pfsp and its supporters are heating things up.

Our friends at General Engineering Company have generously provided us with the timeline including documents needed for moving forward in securing these funds, and to proceed with bidding when funds are secured. This is the time to donate, all donations double up to $25,000 thanks to June and Edward Lenz and once the match is awarded it will bring the PFSP to $155,000. Portage is a city caring for its future and its children. The PFSP and its supporters have demonstrated with the help of its citizens and city government how important and beneficial this park has been since its opening in 2016. Total estimated cost of phase 2 is $165,000
