2. Sponsor a Residency

Individuals, foundations, unions, and organizations can sponsor a Residency for organizers by region/state, identity or movement.  A sponsorship fact sheet describes this program in more detail.

3. Make a Bequest

“My wife and I decided it was time to officially write our Will and Trust. We thought about our values, the experiences that have transformed us and where we wanted to make a lasting gift. Windcall was at the top of the list.” 

-Rebecca and Jo Bauen.  Rebecca Bauen was a Windcall Resident in 2004

A bequest of any amount is a wonderful way to show your support for organizing and organizers.  Folks from any income level can write Windcall into their will.
