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.
