Wise Women Gathering Place provides an inspiring example of how an organization can facilitate transformative change for the communities they serve. The WWGP leadership and staff demonstrate an uncommon level of commitment and passion for service. During the time I spent in residence with them, I observed how young people and adults alike embraced their committed service and the positive impacts yielded as a result. Any funders looking for a high-impact, community-strengthening organization to support should give as much as possible to WWGP. They are worth every dollar.
