Support the recreation and environmental programs at Alum Creek Lake, Delaware Lake, Deer Creek Lake, Paint Creek Lake, Dillon Lake, and Tom Jenkins Dam to improve opportunities for Central Ohio communities at US Army Corps of Engineers Parks and Programs.

SACCA is the first official non-profit partner of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for Central Ohio.  SACCA collects tax exempt donations on behalf of Alum Creek, Deer Creek, Delaware, Dillon, Paint Creek, and Tom Jenkins (Burr Oak) dam projects, assuring funds are invested in the best interests of the local community.  This allows parks to invest in their recreation and environmental programs to meet the needs of the public.  SACCA, in partnership with the USACE Huntington District, can seek funding through grants and donations.  

SACCA is a tax exempt 501 (c) (3) corporation in the State of Ohio.
