This year on what would have been Brian’s 35th Birthday What Would Ward Do? Issued two grants. The first one was to Big City Mountaineers which received $1000. This is our second gift to BCM. Our second grant was to First Descents. We gave First Descents $5000. First Descents provides outdoor adventures to cancer survivors. Brian cared so deeply for friends that encountered the big “C” so we thought he would no doubt believe in First Descents Mission. We thank you for your continued support thought the year and encourage you to familiarize yourself with these organizations!
We recommended our first grant to Big City Mountaineers on October 12, 2017. Our $5,000 grant will fund a 2018 Summer Expedition in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Working with Big City Mountaineers will also allow us to open up the expedition to adult volunteers who want to participate as the mentors.
