Culture, education and the arts contribute to Block Island’s unique fabric and BIRA is pleased to support family-oriented summer activities for all to enjoy as well as educational support for year-round residents.
MOVIES ON THE BEACH — BIRA provides support to Soundwaves which presents family movies shown to all Block Island residents and visitors on the beach during the summer season.
BLUES ON THE BLOCK — BIRA provides funding for one evening of live blues band concerts that are held for the public at State Beach several times during each summer. We look forward to having this series return soon!
SCHOLARSHIP GRANTS and SCHOOL SUPPORT — BIRA provides scholarships to Island students for their education, both here and at college. BIRA also provides funding for the creation and continuing support of programs at the Block Island School.
