Background on Use of Manhasset UFSD Fields; Underwriting of Cost of Fields; Fundraising Objectives
Manhasset PAL conducts youth lacrosse, field hockey and football programs and Manhasset Soccer Club, Inc.
conducts youth soccer programs for children of Manhasset residents. The Manhasset UFSD, through the
permitting process, provides regular use of these rectangular athletic fields to these organizations without charge.
Historically, the Manhasset UFSD has received significant funding from Manhasset booster and youth groups
as well as members of the Manhasset community for the installation of synthetic turf, lights and other capital
improvements. This cooperation on field use has provided an exceptional benefit to the Manhasset community, as
thousands of children have enjoyed a more comprehensive athletic experience due to the much higher availability
of fields for practices and games.
The Manhasset USFD 2013 Fields Initiative has a total projected cost of approximately $700,000. The contribution
for the 2013 Fields Initiative from Manhasset UFSD of approximately $140,000 includes funds primarily from
a New York State grant, as well as comprehensive administrative planning, input, and construction oversight.
Contributions from the other organizations of approximately $260,000 will be derived from existing funds and
membership fees. Approximately $300,000 still needs to be raised from donations.
The ongoing partnership of the Manhasset UFSD, the youth groups and members of the community has been and
continues to be an invaluable and visionary asset which benefits the Manhasset community and all Manhasset
students and student athletes. We urge you to consider a donation in support of this project to help our
community and its children.
