Sports Participation Scholarships Available
The Schilke-Novak Kids’ Sports Trust and supporting organization of the Fremont Area Community Foundation is the result of inspired action on a dream for the community.
The most visible purpose of the Trust is the creation of a new ballpark for the community--Schilke Fields--which is managed by the Fremont Nighthawks. However, the passion of the donors extends beyond the physical facility, with provisions in the Trust for funding to ensure that underprivileged youth in the community can participate in athletic activities and compete with their peers.
