Falcons Field of Dreams Fundraising Campaign

Update 3/9/2023: FH Falcons Field of Dreams

We are moving in the right direction toward replacing our football/soccer field.  Here are some important updates:

  • AstroTurf who bought out the company that provided the turf is honoring the ten-year warranty and covering the full cost of the turf (this is a huge cost savings of around $200,000)
  • The overall cost of the fundraising goal has moved to $525,000. This includes all labor associated with removing and replacing the field; and a higher-grade turf that comes with a 10-year warranty and a yearly maintenance plan.
  • Dr. J has been authorized by the FHUSD governing board to move forward with AstroTurf's warranty proposal and to get on the schedule for the work.
  • Fundraising continues with all donations being held by the FHABC and through donations at the school designated for the field.  
  • The NFL grant opens up this month and with the donations provided by the community, we can apply for a matching grant.
  • Any additional funds that are received above the cost of the field will go toward replacing our very outdated scoreboard to include a play clock. Once all the funding has been secured, the fundraising campaign will be closed.
