Did you know... 

$36 allows a child to attend forest school for a day


Thank you for supporting our life-impacting mission of expanding the forest school movement in Western North Carolina and beyond. Each dollar that you give goes to broadening our impact and reach through the Growing Wild Forest School and the Foundations' ongoing projects and initiatives across the South. 


There are four primary areas where you can choose to contribute:

  • GWFS Operations Fund (outdoor clothing, weatherproof gear, nutritious snacks and more)

  • GWFS Forestship Fund (need-based student scholarships for historically marginalized groups)

  • Educator Development Fund (teacher trainings, continuing ed and professional development)

  • Advocacy & Awareness Fund (student recruitment, state and local licensure, and more) 


 Together we're building a better world, one child and one forest at a time.
