giving while living regional & Micro grants
In 2017, Woodard & Curran, Inc. employees pledged approximately $102K to support Woodard & Curran Foundation's mission to turn passion into progress for a sustainable future. In addition, Woodard & Curran, Inc. has pledged to contribute $44K to the Foundation. The Foundation recognized this commitment to our mission to support environmental stewardship and education by awarding a total of $17,000 in Regional Grants to eleven non-profit organizations around the country. All of the organizations were nominated by Woodard & Curran, Inc. employees.
We also made $500 Micro Grants in the names of three (randomly chosen) Woodard & Curran, Inc. employees to non-profit organizations of their choice. In 2017, they were: Dave Dinsmore (Friends of Casco Bay, ME), James Gaudio (Oakland Nature Preserve, FL), and Laura Tessier (Westchester Children's Museum, NY).
Congratulations to the winners and thank you from Woodard & Curran Foundation!
