Our Volunteer Park Amphitheater Project just received a powerful jump start with the confirmation of major funding from multiple sources.
Seattle Parks District’s Major Projects Challenge Fund has approved a $900,000 grant, and Seattle Parks and Recreation has confirmed an additional $415,000 in funding for the new facility’s public restrooms.
We have also received early pledges of $185,000 in private donations, bringing the total raised to $1.5 million, or just over 55% of the total $2.7 million needed.
Volunteer Park Trust has contracted with Shamra Clark Consulting Group to start the planning phase of a year-long capital campaign to raise the remaining $1.2 million. Construction on the new amphitheater is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2020.
