As a small non-profit, the WMC strives to raise funds to make the PWV program available to all without charge to participants for the cost of the training or travel. To help us make this program sustainable, we do appreciate help from those who are able to contribute to some or all of the travel expenses. Be assured that ability to do so is not a consideration in the review process.
