Why do we need your help?

Over the past 15 years, most of the funding for the WETMAAP Program has come from a group of government sources. In 2010, after years of growth, these sources cover 90% of our budget. In planning for the future sustainability of WETMAAP we know that we must diversify our funding sources and prepare for tightening federal budgets that will reduce or eliminate funding of our program. As many of the WETMAAP participants have asked over the years, we also are interested in and planning on enhancing and expanding the program to provide imagery as a resource for a variety of needs and requirements.

Since 1996 the program has provided over 160 training sessions with a total of 3,400 participants. Each day the WETMAAP website is visited by ?? from around the world.

If, over the past 15 years, WETMAAP has helped you or a friend with materials and content for use in your classroom, personal professional development, ideas for teaching, connect with a person, an idea , or a resource, or just feel inspired for a moment—we need your help.

Our Objectives

We have two objectives:
  1. continue to provide a steady funding stream in a potentially declining budgetary environment within the government;
  2. enhance and expand the envisioned program over the next two to three years and diversify the programs funding streams.

We believe we can accomplish these objectives by reaching a funding goal of $150,000 per year for the next three years from donations.

Our long-term plan We are looking at a wide variety of options to diversify our income streams. At the same time, we are building an "infrastructure" or "intermediary" organization that will provide us with a minimum of three years of secure funding that will allow the WETMAAP Program to be self-sustaining into the future. If we can meet this goal– with the public support – we will be able to provide a broader and richer service to the community. The development of the more diverse funding model will take a several years; and your donations will assist the program in expanding service while we continue to provide the high-quality services you are accustomed to.

Your donation will help support the Program

WETMAAP is a moderately sized program that has several complicated parts: a website, materials and site development, and hands-on training—all of which are expensive to develop and maintain. (We design, program, and maintain the website; we develop site information and materials and facilitate training sessions/workshops.)

The Program has and will continue to provide the following services:

If any of these services are of interest to you, please help support them.
