GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
WRISE depends on the generosity of renewable energy businesses, nonprofit partners, foundations, and individual donors to help us build new opportunities for women’s education, career growth, leadership, and impact.
As we head to the end of what’s been a challenging year for many across our community, we want to give thanks to everyone for stepping up in new ways to continue to strengthen our network and further our mission.
We continue to be thankful for your continued support, your contributions allow us to stay connected virtually and remain optimistic for what 2021 will bring.
Your charitable gift to WRISE will support our mission to promote the education, professional development, and advancement of women to achieve a strong diversified workforce and support a robust renewable energy economy.
