KEEP IT GROWING

You saw the statistics at the beginning of this newsletter. 16 teams and 155 students!

To reach our 2015 goal of almost doubling teams and racers, we need your help.

How can you help?

▪ Make a year-end donation to the WI League. Did you know that a $500 donation will mean scholarships for 4 student-athletes to go racing!

MAKE YOUR ONLINE DONATION TODAY
Choose between donating $10 or $5,000 - any amount is greatly appreciated.

▪ If you’re in a position to make a tax deductible donation to the WI League, be sure to check if your employer might provide a match. Or, see if your employer might be interested in sponsoring the WI League.

For many companies or corporations, the WI League can provide valuable exposure to high school youth who need to learn about products and services they’ll need for the rest of their adult lives.

If you can provide contact info, WI League Co-Founder Kathy Mock will pick it up from there. Send Kathy an email today!
