The WiSH Education Foundation ends 2018 on a high note, having supported local public schools with over $235,000 in support throughout this year.
“We are incredibly excited to have made such a difference this year and we have so many people to thank for the support. Individual and corporate donations, outside grants and donations of goods have allowed us to impact programs across STEAM, focus on under-served populations and even add defibrillators to campuses and concussion software for our student athletes. We’ve affected programs all across the board this year,” says Executive Director Amy Daniels.
Vice Chairman of the Board Lynne Secrest, who recently retired from Boston Scientific, added “Our grant funders give us a solid foundation of giving, without whom we couldn’t do the work we do. It’s important we recognize them and appreciate this year’s funders, who include
City National Bank
Los Angeles Clippers Foundation,
LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger
Southern California Gas Company
Albertsons Companies Foundation, Wolf Creek Restaurant and Brewery
American Institutes for Research
Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital
a private donor, enabled WiSH to assist in getting “Stop the Pressure" kits into every classroom in the district.
In addition to dollar donations, WiSH makes headlines in our region with annual events including the AutoNation Vehicle Giveaway in March, Wine on the Roof in May, Burrito Bowl in August and Cocktails on the Roof in August. “There is no better way to both raise funds and thank our supporters than through these amazing events. Every person who buys a ticket enjoys themselves and helps make a difference at the same time,” adds Chairman of the Board Richard Cohn. “We have an incredible group of volunteers who create ideas, develop the plan and execute each event. In a region where there are a lot of fundraising events to choose from, WiSH is proud to host some of the most successful and unique events around.”
