National Exchange Bank Foundation Issues $500,000 Matching Grant for FDL Soccer Association


The Foundation has indicated that the breadth of the socio-economic reach of the program in addition to the 100% volunteer structure of the organization made this initiative a great fit for the Foundation. The Association serves more than 1,700 players from all backgrounds throughout the greater Fond du Lac region and no player is turned away if the investment to play is a concern.

The turf field is one initiative of the “Safer Places to Play” initiative of the Soccer Association. A turf field will minimize game cancellations due to poor field conditions, maintain consistent practice schedule and provide an opportunity to bring additional outside events to the Fond du Lac community, providing the potential for a boost in spending at many Fond du Lac area businesses. The cost of the field is anticipated to be approximately $900,000.

Anyone interested in making a donation or more information can visit fondysoccer.com, email president@fondysoccer.com, or mail a check to FDL Soccer Association, PO Box 1292, Fond du Lac, WI 54936.
