What is WaterFire Providence’s Need?
There is a lot of not-so-fancy stuff that is imperative in making WaterFire take place. A critical, yet artless need, is a dependable and tough 4×4 pickup truck (or two!). We utilize our pickup trucks for everything from moving wood and towing boats to plowing our facilities and transporting staff and volunteers on event day. We can honestly say our trucks are one of the most important pieces to a WaterFire event, we couldn’t illuminate downtown Providence without them!
Expenses for WaterFire lightings can run high. Raw materials, fuel, boat maintenance and things that may seem unimportant from the outside, such as zip-ties, batteries, snips and more, are imperative to an event day and they all add up over a season.
We are asking YOU to help us with these “not so fancy” things on #GivingTuesday to help keep the fires burning! If you appreciate the significance of WaterFire Providence’s contributions to our community, help us ensure we can continue to be a free and open event that unites residents and visitors through art.
Why donate on #GivingTuesday?
WaterFire continues to bring connection and celebration to the river because of the generosity of our community – FOR the community, BY the community. In 2019, we begin the celebration of our 25th season and we are here because of the community – because of you!
We thank you for your support throughout the years and hope you will continue your support. On Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to support WaterFire. WaterFire Providence is proud to be a GuideStar Certified Platinum nonprofit.
