2020 Annual Fund


Against the otherwise cheerless backdrop of COVID-19, we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing something truly amazing this year at WCHS, with the introduction of several new initiatives such  as Laid Back History and our upcoming Underground Railroad exhibit, Arcs of Freedom. The pandemic has neither slowed our work, nor dampened our enthusiasm. 


As we strive to continue this very significant work, we humbly ask that you consider contributing to our 2020 Annual Fund.


We’ve set a goal of $20,000 for this year’s Annual Fund.


With matching pledges totaling $10,000 from our Board of Directors and Stradigi Virtual Marketing, every dollar contributed through January 31, 2021 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 – giving your contribution an even greater positive impact.
