Our Annual Donovan Foundation Matching Fund Campaign
On September 1, WAS kicked off its annual Donovan Foundation Matching Fund Campaign. For each two dollars we raise through the beginning of November, our generous friends at the Donovan Foundation will match the contribution with an additional dollar. This, the largest and most important fundraising event we undertake each year, helps to underwrite everything we do, from our subsidized daily lessons to equipment purchases and repair to our complementary wounded warrior snow sports and paddling lessons. To help us maintain and improve the strength and reach of all of our adaptive sports programs, use this link, below. Let's make this year's Donovan campaign our best ever. WAS Donovan Campaign
All of us at WAS would like to thank our friends at Sedona Taphouse, for choosing us as the beneficiary of the July Steak-Out for Charity event (with a percentage of all proceeds going to WAS). We're very grateful for the generous contribution connected to this terrific fundraising event, for the enjoyable outings to the Millmont St. taphouse, and for the many ways the Sedona Taphouse owners, managers, and staff think often about and contribute greatly to the community they serve so well. Join us again as we continue to frequent this favorite place of ours in Charlottesville, on future Steak Out Mondays, or any other time
WAS very much appreciates your tax deductible gifts of any amount and at any time; for more information about our fall Donovan matching funds campaign, how to send a contribution by check, make a secure online donation, donate appreciated stock, or register WAS as a recipient of your Kroger Community Rewards purchases, click here. WAS is also now a participant in the Amazon Smile program; select Wintergreen Adaptive Sports as the beneficiary on the Amazon Smile portal and a percentage of your purchase will be donated to us.
WAS loves its Junior Instructors; watch this video to see why...

On January 5, 2014, in the Sunday edition of the Staunton News Leader, writer Nancy Sorrells offered an illuminating portrait of Wintergreen Adaptive Sports, with a special focus on one of our favorite instructors and race team members, Seth Whitten.
