While this fund may not sound as exciting as prizes and such, it supports the very foundation on which WAWH functions. The organization cannot operate without the Operational Fund.
The Fund for the Future is a special account that was established in 2019 in commemoration of the 50th anniversary. It enables WAWH to:

Please consider donating to WAWH's Operational Fund and/or the Fund for the Future.
