It’s time to support Wise Fool’s annual gift campaign.

This fall we made the leap to our new studio, with twice the space. Now we’re following through on our commitment to create a double dose of the programs and performances we’ve loved offering you for 15 years, but we need your help to keep us flying.

Our annual campaign goal of $25,000 will give us the funds we need to keep our programs running.  Your past gifts have helped us get this far, and we sincerely hope you can give now.  Your donation shouts “YES!” to beauty, connection, and active play all wrapped up in creating a just, healthy and vibrant community.
