    We sincerely thank the Woodard & Curran Founda-tion for its generous donation. This money will go a long way to funding our May 2014 implementation trip implement-ing rainwater harvesting systems on ten homes. Your contribu-tion will significantly help in

    our efforts to make daily access to clean water a reality for the people of Guachthuuq, Guatemala. - Michele Mensing, President, EWB-USA WPI

    2013 was a successful year for the Woodard & Curran Foun-dation. Major progress was made in increasing our donor base, and as a result, the Foundations Board of Directors voted to increase funding for grant awards, from the two awarded in 2012 to three in 2013, totaling $10,000. Representatives from the Foundation traveled to award the three grants to the following organizations:

    BangorLandTrust:$2,500grantfortrailimprovements,informational kiosks, and improved trail signage.

    NewHampshireAudubon:$4,400grantforEnvironmen-tal Education Outreach Program
