Fertile Ground Campaign & Timeline

In collaboration with Tabernacle Presbyterian Church (Tab), Tab Community Services, Inc. (TCSI) continually looks for ways to attract investment to the inner-city neighborhood that Tab calls home. In 2006, TCSI began a three-phased, multi-million dollar capital campaign called Fertile Ground to upgrade its community wellness facilities. In 2008, TCSI successfully attracted $1.1 million of investment to complete Phase I, which included the installation of a state-of-the-art playing field, track and field training facilities, and new perimeter and interior fencing and lighting.

Today, TCSI is executing Phase II, which will include enhancements to Tab Field's supporting infrastructure and community space such as fan seating, a press box, restroom and concession facilities, gathering space, site office, and equipment storage. Being that Tab welcomes thousands to the corner of 34th and Central every year with existing programming, it's only appropriate that we build with growth - in programs and future neighborhood-based events - in mind.
