Help Launch a New Era for CWB
by Brandt Faatz
The Center for Wooden Boats is thrilled to report that, with generous support from our community, construction of the Wagner Education Center is nearing completion! The exterior will be done in December. The challenge now is to finish the interior and set up for success in 2017.
We are bursting at the seams! 100,000 people visit our docks every year, and we need the new building to adequately serve them. Our programs run at full capacity and sell out early each year.
Your contribution can help us complete the interior construction of the new building.
- Purchase materials for volunteers to build interior finishes, cabinets and work benches.
- Install fire alarm and safety systems necessary for occupation.
- Transform the office space in the Boat House into a community gathering place.
- Strengthen our roots in the community while expanding our reach to engage more youth and adults, and better serving our members.
Your contribution can help us set up for success in 2017.
- Expand our programs and exhibits to engage more families, kids, and youth at risk.
- Purchase equipment, tools and supplies to deliver our programs.
- Ensure operational excellence to scale up our programs sustainably.
- Fund operational expenses to support more than double our physical space.
Now is the time to step up with what I hope will be your biggest investment in CWB to date. As you consider how you can make the most impact, please don’t hesitate to call me at 206-382-2628.
