Public Ocean-View Memorial Park Location Purchased
The organization has purchased a parcel of land in Charlestown for The Colin B. Foote Memorial Park. Our goal is to create an ocean-view, public park overlooking Block Island Sound from Montauk Point to Block Island and beyond. We are seeking tax-deductible donations to help us make this a reality. This acre parcel has beautiful water views and is an idyllic spot for a public reflection space and memorial park. In time, it is our hope to transform this tranquil space into an opportunity for not only peaceful contemplation, but also a learning center to further educate the public about intersection safety and our larger mission.
We have successfully raised the funds necessary to purchase the park land but now need to raise another $20,000 to create an environment on the land that will allow the public to enjoy the land and provide easy access. Here are pictures of the parcel on Rt. 1 in Charlestown, RI:
How your money will be used: 100% of your donation will go toward the costs of creating a beautiful environment for everyone to enjoy as a public park in Colin’s memory and maintaining the parcel of land.
Donations are tax-deductible: Colinslaw.org is registered with the IRS as 501c3 organization, which means that donations can be deducted on your tax return. Within a couple weeks of your gift, you will receive an acknowledgement letter that you can use as support for your tax deduction.
