Notes from Wisdom’s Executive Director
New Years Greetings
First and foremost, we would like to express our gratitude to all of you who made such generous donations to Wisdom of the Elders through our Give! Guild campaign and to those who made private donations. What a turnout!
We cannot continue the work for our communities without your generous support and continued partnerships and helping with the collaborative work we share throughout our communities. We have been able to move forward with our Strategic Plans for building into the future a stronger stance and broader outreach into our communities and helping to restore and rebuild our Traditional Ecological internships and move forward with making new films and increasing our curriculum to include more STEM/STEAM elements and partnerships.
I hope each of you is keeping well and safe and I wish you all a prosperous New Year.
With our deepest gratitude, we thank you to each and every one!
