Invest in Kentland:
Donate to Batton Park’s Revitalization Fund

Your Donation Makes a Difference in Kentland’s Future

The Kentland Opportunity Zone Task Force has partnered with the Jasper Newton Foundation to raise $50,000 toward renovating Batton Park. The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) will match this $50,000 for a total of $100,000. This will help us move forward toward our overall fundraising goal of $200,000!

The newly updated one acre park will include age-appropriate, state-of-the-art equipment and surfaces, as well as a walking path for additional exercise opportunities. It will serve Kentland families and friends, ranging from toddlers to seniors.

We will recognize donor generosity with each level of giving, from receiving Kentland-branded materials to having your name permanently embossed into the leaves of the park’s new donor tree. This metal-work structure will honor significant contributions for generations to come with Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Level leaves.

Go the Extra Mile With Us By Volunteering

We have a long and beautiful history of banding together to make amazing things happen.

Whether it was relocating the Pennsylvania Railroad Depot, updating Blue Devil Lagoon, or hosting a large-scale community picnic, the earnest hearts within our volunteers have made the difference. In an effort to offset costs, we invite you to become a volunteer. This will be immeasurably helpful once we’re ready to officially update the equipment at Batton Park.
