Grand Island Memorial Stadium

Original 1945-47 Memorial Stadium Campaign materials

How it all began...

The 1945-47 Memorial Stadium Campaign included these 1,600 community donors

A community comes together

In early 1945, a group of business men were having coffee at the Yancey Hotel. “Grand Island could use a good football stadium,” remarked one business man. The response was, “Why not go after one?”  This led to a series of events with the American Legion taking up the charge to raise funds to build a stadium.

The project would bring the community together to raise a little more than $100,000 and build the stately East side of Memorial Stadium. The School District sold Ryder Park to the City of Grand Island and used the proceeds towards the project.

The Grand Island Daily Independent made the lead gift of $5,000, which was matched by the Liederkranz.

By September of 1947 after the initial drive and the final push the American Legion had raised $103,000 from 1,520 individuals, businesses, and organizations. Even school children had given to the drive. Some donors gave twice, giving to both the initial campaign drive and the final push bringing the total gift count to 1,644 entries.

The original donor list was never printed in its entirety. We aim to correct that now. What follows is an alphabetized list of the original donors that built Grand Island’s Memorial Stadium 71 years ago.

This is our Memorial Stadium.

This is our Grand Legacy.

What we learned from this incredible list is that Grand Island rolled up her sleeves and everyone participated in building this community asset. We have the opportunity to do this again!

Our Memorial Stadium is in need of modern upgrades to seating and infrastructure so that it may be an asset to our community for another seventy years. The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation has kicked off a $17 million capital campaign to meet this need. The campaign includes a lead gift of $10 million from 1964 alum Lanny Martin, an investment of $2 million from the school district, and a community campaign to raise the additional $5 million.

We hope YOU will help us give our community
home field advantage again.

Our volunteers have started making calls. It is Our Memorial Stadium, Our Grand Legacy. And, it will take all of us just as it did in 1947.
