The WiSH Education Foundation ends 2018 on a high note, having supported local public schools with more than $235,000.
“We are incredibly excited to have made such a difference this year and we have so many people to thank for the support,” said Executive Director Amy Daniels.
“Individual and corporate donations, outside grants and donations of goods have allowed us to impact programs across STEAM, focus on underserved populations and even add defibrillators to campuses and concussion software for our student-athletes,” Daniels said. “We’ve affected programs all across the board this year.”
“Our grant funders give us a solid foundation of giving, without whom we couldn’t do the work we do,” said Vice Chairman of the Board Lynne Secrest, who recently retired from Boston Scientific.
“It’s important we recognize them and appreciate this year’s funders, who include Boston Scientific, Edison, City National Bank, LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Jersey Mike’s, the Southern California Gas Company, Los Angeles Clippers Foundation, Albertsons Companies Foundation, Wolf Creek Brewery and American Institutes for Research,” Secrest said.
Along with Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital and a private donor, the Wm S. Hart Education Foundation also assisted in getting “stop the pressure bleed 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 from January to 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,” said Chairman of the Board Richard Cohn.
“Every person who buys a ticket enjoys themselves and helps make a difference at the same time,” he said. “We have an incredible group of volunteers who create ideas, develop the plan and execute the 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.”
