Erie Gives Day 2017

Thank you to the 101 donors who supported our efforts today through Erie Gives. You raised a combined total of $30,180!

We look forward to sharing our progress with you as we begin our winter repairs to the U.S. Brig Niagara this October.

On August 8, 2017  from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.


The Flagship Niagara League will participate in Erie Gives Day!

Crew and volunteers spend countless hours during the winter months juggling over a half-dozen major projects, from replacing the foredeck planking to repairing the forward crosstree on the foremast. Most of these are in pretty bad shape after the sailing season and about a month into the sailing season, they often weather quickly.

These repairs become quite costly and we need your help!
Your tax deductible donation will go towards winter maintenance projects to help sustain the U.S. Brig Niagara and aid in her efforts to continue sailing for future generations.

Any donation of $25 or more made on Erie Gives Day will be matched by the Erie Community Foundation.
