About the Fund
Building the Future while Preserving the Past
The Carson Park Baseball Stadium Renovation Project is a partnership between the City of Eau Claire, the users of the stadium, and YOU, the many supporters of baseball in the Chippewa Valley.
Renovation plans include:
• Permanent bleacher seating along both sides of the stadium
• Expanded dugouts and artificial turf
• New restrooms and concession areas
• Enlarged plaza area
The estimated cost of these improvements is $3.5 million, with the city covering half of the costs. The balance, ($1.75 million), will be provided by the users, area businesses, and individuals like YOU!
Whether you're a former player who enjoyed playing in the same stadium as the legendary Henry Aaron, or simply a fan who's followed your favorite player or team over the years, we encourage you to consider contributing to this Project. With your support, this Project will commence following the 2017 baseball season.
All gifts to this Project are tax-deductible. For donations of $1,000 or more, you'll be recognized on a plaque inside the stadium.
You can fill out the form on the right to make an online donation, or you can make a check payable and mail to:
