Donations Make It Happen!
Wilderness Youth Project is here because of the support of our community. Fifty percent of our budget comes from contributions: we rely on community members who are as passionate as we are about the need to connect children with nature.
We are seeking funds to support our scholarship fund. Investing in proactive enrichment opportunities is more economically sound than shouldering the burden of the cost to society of youth who fall through the cracks. The total annual operating budget for WYP (FY 2013) is $710,000. Program and operating costs are supported by funds generated from individual donations, grants from private and public foundations, and program fees.
