In addition, Woodard & Curran, Inc. has pledged to contribute $44K to the Foundation. The Foundation is recognizing this commitment to our mission of 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.

Additionally, we are making $500 micro grants in the names of three (randomly chosen) Woodard & Curran, Inc. employees to non-profit organizations of their choice. They are: 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!
