The CCAC has recently joined a donor management program called NETWORK FOR GOOD. They help manage donations and give us a platform to reach out and maximize the potential of donors. Most people in the area don't realize that we are a Not-for-Profit organization. They see City-County in the name and think we are funded by the local government or parks department. We rely solely on self generated funds, grants, and donations. With this program we hope to be able to raise funds to keep the park at a top notch level for years to come.
Here are some specific categories you can donate to.
Here you can donate to our new goal fund. Our Goals have stood the test of time. However they have taken a beating over the years. Repairs only can be done so many times before it's just time to replace them. $1300 for a single goal. As we raise money we will purchase a new goal every $1300 raised.
We are in desperate need of irrigation for our soccer fields. With the ever changing weather in Indiana, one year we get flooded the next we have a drought. With proper irrigation and the proper drainage ( these fields were built to drain properly) we can maintain playable fields all season long.
The Multi Sport Building was built in 2011. The original flooring was a carpet turf that had gotten wore out. We replaced it in 2020 with a rubber type material that has proven not to be good for sporting events. We would like to get a harder surface floor with a soft backing.
The Kosciusko County Community Foundation has made a generous offer to match donations generated for operating cost dollar for dollar up to $5000. Please help us reach this goal and donate here!
Time to upgrade the lights here at the CCAC. More energy efficient, money saving LED lights is what we need. We could save up to 70% monthly just on our electric bill.
Here you can make any general donation. To many options don't want to pick just one? Pick this one and we will split it up to the different options or finish off a campaign that is close to finishing.
Add a footnote if this applies to your business
The 65+ acre facility was completed and opened in 1994. Prior to that year, the majority of all recreation activity took place in downtown Warsaw at Center Lake Park. With the expansion of Zimmer Headquarters, Mayor Jeff Plank took the initiative to improve Center Lake Park, which is now called Central Park. With these improvements, Central Park was not able to house quality athletic fields, so Mayor Plank proposed the CCAC. The CCAC would also be used as a major source for developing economical impact for the County.
The CCAC was funded by many local businesses from the community, along with assistance from the city, county and several grants. Today, the CCAC still relies on assistance from the City of Warsaw and the Kosciusko County Convention Visitor & Recreation Commission. All money generated from the CCAC go back into operations and improvements. The CCAC is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3.
In 1994 the CCAC began running sanctioned leagues and tournaments through the National Softball Association sanctioning body. Today, the CCAC is recognized as one of the top facilities in the nation, hosting National tournaments in men’s, women’s and youth events. The CCAC leases the facility to independent groups such as KCSL Soccer, Wave Travel Soccer, Hispanic Soccer, NISL Soccer, and many individuals and teams. In 2008 the CCAC was the first Indiana Park inducted into the NSA Fast Pitch Softball Hall of Fame.
