The Community 1st Credit Union Foundation awarded a $100,000 donation to the Ottumwa Indoor SportsPlex facility. The C1st Foundation’s charitable giving focuses on education, community betterment, and the support of activities that involve and recognize the value of our members and employees.

The Ottumwa SportsPlex will be a state-of-the-art recreation facility that will not only benefit Ottumwa but all the surrounding communities.  The impact the Ottumwa SportsPlex will have on the area goes beyond sports, this will offer a space for communities to come together and stay active together.  The significance on the youth demographic far exceeds what we offer now.  The Ottumwa Indoor SportsPlex will host a variety of tournaments and games such as volleyball, basketball, and soccer. The committee indicated they are over 70% the way to be fully funded.  For more information and stay updated visit ottumwasportsplex.com.

“Having a SportsPlex like Ottumwa is planning will put communities like Ottumwa on the map in a big way.” says Greg Hanshaw, CEO of Community 1st Credit Union,  “We are honored and proud to be able to make this substantial donation to a facility that will provide many benefits for our membership.  On behalf of C1st, we cannot be more excited to see this project come to fruition.”

C1st grant-funded project awards are made possible through the C1st Credit Union Impact Giving Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
