What We Do

We partner with over 40 nonprofits to create generosity experiences for all classrooms in the Wood River Valley. These projects must impact the quality of life in Blaine County and have a demonstrable outcome during the school year. Last year the nonprofits presented over 50 projects to the students. As a result, students participated in over 8,000 hours of community service and were able to contribute $52,000 to support the nonprofit’s throughout the valley.

Wow-students’ projects were included in the classrooms of the Blaine County School District, Syringa Mountain School, Community School, Pioneer Montessori, and Sage School.
