W4R is part of #GivingTuesday

Riley Park is unique in Calgary. It’s a regional, local and historic grant of land from a generous Calgarian in 1910. There’s need for continued generosity from W4R’s supporters as fundraising fell short of being able to fabricate Reflecting Blooms as designed.

W4R’s first donor, The Calgary Foundation, nominated W4R as a charity worth supporting. W4R is a special project because everyone needs water, as some cricket players learned the hard way.

The drinking fountain design is special because it’s so inclusive, with stems for all, including four-legged park visitors, which Trail and Jake greatly appreciate.

As well as the usual path for donating through the Parks Foundation website, #GivingTuesdayYYC is a broader effort to meet community goals. At the drop down menu, please select Water for Riley Park to donate.

And, Gena Rotstein of Karma & Cents invited W4R’s volunteer project manager to appear with her on Global Calgary, to speak about #GivingTuesday, which is about so much more than just donating money and forgetting about social issues.

Be part of Calgary’s public art legacy;
for Riley Park, for you, and for the future.

Donate to make this vision become reality. At the instructions to seller page, specify that your support is for The Water for Riley Project. The Parks Foundation issues tax receipts for donations greater than $10.00.

We invite everyone to participate as a volunteer, fundraiser, donor, sponsor, or any other role. Call 403 862 1923 and leave your contact information.
