It has been a vision for the New Hope-Solebury School District to construct a stadium facility for our school community for over twenty years. We want to inspire our student athletes, energize their audiences, and bring our community together in celebration. Help us show our students the joy of community. Help us inspire the Lion pride.
Donor contributions will be recognized with engraved cast iron plaques and bricks that will remain in the stadium in perpetuity. By helping to build this exciting legacy, you will leave an important legacy:
- $50,000 Championship Sponsor - 18" x 24" Cast Bronze Plaque*
- $25,000 Playoff Sponsor - 12" x 18" Cast Bronze Plaque
- $10,000 Gameday Sponsor - 8" x 12" Cast Bronze Plaque
- $5,000 Training Sponsor - 6" x 9" Cast Bronze Plaque
- $2,500 Rookie Sponsor - 4" x 6" Cast Bronze Plaque
- $1,000 Spectator Sponsor - 2" x 4" Cast Bronze Plaque
We will use bricks for a component of the complex (either in the form of a brick wall or paved area) and will offer the opportunity to purchase an engraved brick for $500 each.
For individuals or organizations interested to provide leadership gifts for this once-in-a-generation project, there are opportunities remaining to name components of the stadium structure, including the scoreboard, concession stand, and fieldhouse. To learn more, please contact Stephanie Yoder, Community Relations, at email@example.com.
*All donations to New Hope-Solebury School District for the purposes of the stadium project are tax-deductible. Plaque sizes are approximate and may be subject to modest adjustments in the final design.
The stadium complex will expand upon the transformative improvements completed with the installation of a brand new track and turf field in 2021. The new surfaces have already brought new energy to our athletics program and given our students access to facilities comparable to those of their opponents. The second phase of improvements will include the addition of:
- Stadium fieldhouse with locker rooms and ADA-accessible restrooms
- Concessions and adjoining seating area
- Press box with multimedia studio
- Additional bleachers
- Gated enclosure
- Upgraded sound system and lighting
Nearing the Finish Line
Leadership gifts from dedicated individuals and funds allocated for stadium improvements through the NHSD 10-Year Facilities Plan total nearly $2,200,000, which has the construction of a stadium within our sights. With support from additional donors who see the incredible possibilities ahead for our athletes, our schools, and our community, we will reach our fundraising goal of $500,000 and launch construction in Summer 2023 with the intention to open our new stadium for the Fall 2024 athletic season. We need you!
When you make a gift to our stadium, you are helping to reshape the experience for our students both now and in the future—from the athlete who wins on the home turf to the young elementary student who cheers in the stands. After they graduate, our stadium will be a place for generations of Lions alumni to reconnect and celebrate all that their years in New Hope-Solebury meant to them. Thank you for considering a donation to make this once-in-a-generation project a reality for #NHSD.
