WOW! WOW! WOW!
With your help, we did it! WYSE reached our fundraising goal and raised over $10,000 for our Giving Tuesday and End-of-Year Campaign at the end of 2019. Thank you so much to each individual and foundation that donated. We also had many of our alumni and friends of WYSE for hosting their own Facebook Fundraisers! (Special shout out to Linda Leung, Anna Boyle, Kaitlin Meek, Joelle Jackson, Erin Silliman, Mary Liu, and Nat Sarju for hosting fundraisers.)
As a volunteer-run organization, WYSE has always been sustained through the passion of our mentors, mentees, alumni, and donors. Through each donation, we are able to better support our branches with stronger programming, more resources, and making sure all of the nuts-and-bolts of each branch are running smoothly.
