An introduction to Wayfinding Academy

Hello Friends, As a board member of Wayfinding Academy, I am trying to help raise funds for this startup non-profit, two-year Portland college that is challenging us all to rethink the higher education system as we know it. They have innovative approaches and a fresh perspective that makes me believe they have a shot at making a real impact. I am hoping you could make a one-time donation of $50-$100.

Or send a check to: The Wayfinding Academy PO Box 13483 Portland, OR 97213 Please feel free to reach out,
