Dear Wisdom Community,

Happy Holidays!

As we move into Holiday Season, we continue our Wisdom of the Elders Winter Fundraising Drive.

We kicked off last month with #GivingTuesday, and thanks to your generosity we raised a little over $200! We are so grateful for your support of our organization and our work.

>>>>Our Winter Drive will continue on the rest of this month of DECEMBER, and we have set a fundraising goal of $2,000 — we hope to meet this goal by December 31st with your help!

As an organization dedicated to preserving Native American cultural awareness, cultural sustainability, multimedia education, and race reconciliation — we ask that you partner with us this month so that we can continue making an impact as an organization that supports and serves Oregon’s Native American Communities.

We will be raffling off a few copies of our Native Wisdom DVDs to those who participate and donate to us as a token of gratitude for your support!

Message from Executive Director, Gerry RainingBird
The Season of Generosity

In many of our tribal traditions, winter was and is always the time for quiet reflection of our connectedness to all of our relatives, from the youngest to the oldest, from the ones that grow as roots, plants and flowers, to the ones that swim, fly, and walk the sacred grounds of mother earth. It was and continues to be a time for storytelling, with each story being filled with special lessons about our life purpose, cultural values, sacred relationships, and being mindful of how we honor our special gifts.

One of the most important is the gift of generosity and as we take this time to reflect, Wisdom again expresses our gratitude for your support in our efforts to sustain the good work of our programs.  We also encourage you to continue the practice caring for one another, and if you can, we encourage you to give, to share, and remember the gift of generosity,

With Gratitude

 – Gerry

Dear Wisdom Community,

Join us as we kickoff our Wisdom of the Elders Winter Fundraising Drive with #GivingTuesday!

#GivingTuesday is one of the biggest days of the year for non-profit organizations and charities around the country. This is a huge opportunity to give back to community focused individuals and organizations that give back all year, do good, and are making impact and change for other people!

As an organization dedicated to preserving Native American cultural awareness, cultural sustainability, multimedia education, and race reconciliation — we ask that you partner with us this #GivingTuesday so that we can continue making an impact as an organization that supports and serves Oregon’s Native American Communities.

Here are three ways you can make an impact this #Giving Tuesday:
1. Donate and be part of WOTE’S cultural sustainability work
2. Share our Facebook posts and retweet us to spread the message #WOTE
3. Tag your friends who should know about WOTE and the work we are doing

As many of you are aware, our ancestors have always honored the tradition of generosity, and we hope that Wisdom can count on you to continue that practice. We are deeply grateful for those of you that have already given your financial support, and our wish is that you will be inspired to share this opportunity to give, with your colleagues, friends, relatives. 

We will be raffling off a few copies of our Native Wisdom DVDs to those who participate in #GivingTuesday with us as a token of gratitude for your support!

Thank you,
Gerry RainingBird

Dear Wisdom Community,

We have had such an abundant month! We are so grateful to you, our community, our friends and our relatives for supporting our community focused events we hosted the past few weeks. Thank you to everyone that came out to our Native Wisdom Film Screenings and Community Consultations this month — we owe much of the success to you!

In addition to our screenings, we have been busy attending and preparing for events at both Metro and Intel, as both organizations approached Wisdom to participate in events they were hosting for Native American Heritage Month. We are sharing our work with Metro’s Diversity and Inclusion Department, and also with Intel’s Native American Network. What a privilege! It’s been a busy, exciting, and fulfilling month.

Next week we kickoff our Winter Fundraising Drive with #GivingTuesday, and we’ll be preparing some special items for giveaways throughout the month of December. We love to update you with all of the good work our organization is doing and hope that you will support us during the coming months.
