Eastside Community Center - Tacoma
A true center for the community, the Eastside Community Center in Tacoma is a 55,000 square foot dream brought together with great vision from Metro Parks Tacoma and numerous foundations and donors. The ECC is a contemporary space to gather, complete with a cafe, recording studio, restaurant size kitchen, full size gymnasium and aquatics center. The response from the community has been an overwhelming success.
Bellarmine Prep Memorial Field
Memorial Field, built in 1945, originally serviced 300 students participating in five sports. Today the school has nearly 1000 students and 19 sports. Memorial Field was in dire need for an upgrade to keep up with the demand and the NFF stepped in to help with a new state of the art synthetic field. Along with the field, the visitor side bleachers were also upgraded increasing the seating capacity to 875.
Ojai Community Skate Park
Teaming up with a small community that raised funds for a skate park, the NFF provided funding for lights which enabled for double the skate park use. The lights have also allowed for a better opportunity for parents to watch and participate more regularly.
University of Puget Sound Athletics and Aquatics Center
The University of Puget Sound opened a new athletic and aquatic center on campus in the Fall of 2016. The addition and expansion of the fitness center provided an opportunity to all students at UPS to incorporate health and wellness into their lives which zeros in on the mission of the Names Family Foundation.
