Waterfall Forge’s Donation Efforts
 
Over the last six years or so, Waterfall Forge has built and donated over thirty copper fountains and fiberglass sugar kettles to assist in fundraising for local, national charities and non-profits. As of October 2018, our efforts have helped raise over $63,000 for the organizations we have been working to help. The auctions and raffles held by these groups have been successful through the hard work of many volunteers and the generosity of folks like you. All the money from the auctions and raffles goes to benefit the groups. The most recent group we have been working with is the ALS Association of Louisiana and Mississippi. Since October of 2017, they have raised over $7,000 from the auction of our work.
Listed below are some of the other organizations we have worked with over the last few years and an estimate of the donations that came their way.
