Our 2020 Annual Appeal (Oct-Nov)

This first Annual Appeal was a tremendous success.  The campaign kicked off with an anonymous donor who pledged $15,000 as a matching gift. Over 200 SWESA members responded to the challenge, raising that first $15,000 and continuing to reach a total of $46,578.86.  

Our thanks go out to the generous anonymous donor, the SWESA members who donated (Annual Donor Appreciation Wall 2020), the SWESA volunteers and staff who worked behind the scenes and, to Mike Bull, a SWESA member who stepped forward to act as the Lead.

Annual Appeal 2021 (Oct-Nov)

Watch for details about the 2021 Appeal in the summer.  We expect it will run in Oct/Nov and we have high hopes that by then we may be released from the restrictions we are now under.  We have some exciting ideas that could combine the Appeal with opportunities to mingle and enjoy each others company once more.
