As part of the Foundation’s 75th Anniversary celebration, we concentrated on two efforts: Erie Gives Day and the Bayfront Beautification Project. Erie Gives was a tremendous success, raising over $771,000 for 213 nonprofits in a single day from 3,000 donors. We concluded that the bluff abutting the Bayfront Parkway, which serves as the gateway to our beautiful city, often appears as an unsightly dumping ground. Our board allocated $75,000 for a Bayfront Beautification Project and we agreed to serve as a catalyst in attracting other important Erie organizations to join in this effort.
