Change Lives this #GivingTuesday
Over the past seven decades, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has developed intellectual and public leaders—generations of college faculty, as well as scholars and thinkers in fields like school administration, public policy, ethics and values, gender studies, and other areas of national need.
On December 1, help continue that legacy by joining Woodrow Wilson for #GivingTuesday—the movement to encourage giving during a consumer-driven holiday season. With your show of support by tweet, by Facebook post, or by donation, you can be a part of the WW story and help make more opportunities like this possible:
