We Need Your Help!
As with every year, we are asking all of our professionals to participate in WPRA Foundation fundraising efforts, so it can continue supporting students and professionals.
Funds generated by the Foundation support countless students attending the annual WPRA Conference and professionals attending vital educational training schools and workshops. In addition, the Foundation maintains a strong presence by providing funding for the State Conference, Leadership Academy and other various workshops that benefit the entire association (i.e. Office Support Workshop and Playground Leaders Workshop).
The Annual Fund Drive has multiple approaches, which we are seeking everyone’s participation.
- First, we are asking all WPRA professional members to simply make a monetary contribution to the Foundation. You can do this by completing and mailing the enclosed form with your donation. Checks should be written to the WPRA Foundation. You can also send your donation on-line through the WPRA website.
- Second, participate in upcoming fundraising events sponsored by the WPRA Foundation:
The Annual Tailgate Outing has changed this year. We will be attending a Lakeshore
Chinooks Minor League Baseball game on Friday evening, June 6th at Kapko Park in
Mequon, WI. The tailgate will include a fish fry.
Plan on golfing with us at the Annual Green Golf Partners/WPRA Foundation Golf Outing on Friday, September 12, 2014 at New Berlin Hills Golf Course.
- Third, we know that some of you still have Piggy Banks from the Piggy Bank Challenge that has been conducted for the past three years. For those of you that still have one, we ask that you deposit your loose change in the banks, fill them up and bring them with you to the annual WPRA Conference at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
In an effort to move our profession forward, I ask that you assist the Annual Fund Drive by participating! If every member of the WPRA gave at least a $10 donation to the Foundation’s Annual Fund Drive (less than a round of drinks), over $10,800 would be generated - double of what is currently generated. So much more could be accomplished with everyone’s participation!
Thank you for your past and future generosity!
