Since 1995, the Trust has supported a limited number of youth recreational projects within eastern Iowa and western Illinois. Efforts receiving Trust support have typically involved the construction or renovation of athletic facilities situated on school or municipal property, such as running tracks, soccer fields and baseball diamonds, among others. However, it should be noted that the Trust does not generally provide funding to support school-based playground initiatives, unless they are represented as part of a Trust-initiated program, involving multiple sites throughout a region of the state.
