Why Give to WISEST?

By donating to WISEST, individuals and organizations are helping to empower women in STEM and to create more opportunities for thousands of young women.  WISEST and its supporters are all working together to break down the barriers that often prevent young women from pursing an education or career in STEM related fields.   By supporting WISEST, you too can contribute to the diversity of voices that are represented in STEM!

We are Donor Driven

Though WISEST is supported by the U of A through in-kind contributions such as space and campus resources, we rely almost completely on donations from corporations, foundations, individuals and the public sector in order to develop and deliver our innovative programs. We could not be a success without such generosity.

We value our donors and try to give as much public recognition as possible, whenever the opportunities present, including: on the WISEST website, in WISEST newsletters and in annual publications. There are also many opportunities to become involved and to meet the people who benefit from donations. Charitable tax receipts will be provided for all donations. Contact for more details or click here to find out how to donate.
