2016 IHHS Programs

Going Forward---Join us!
Most of what we have accomplished has been done with little or no financial resources. We rarely charge for our programs. We cannot continue to operate this way and continue to provide the programs and the student awards. We need your help and support. Please consider becoming a Friend of the IHHS with a donation of any size-it all adds up. The IHHS is a self-supporting enterprise, thus it relies on businesses, organizations, and individuals for funding. Your contribution can be put toward student awards or can be used to support the programming costs of IHHS events. Sponsorship may be monetary and in-kind donations (such as water or healthy snacks, garden materials). The IRS recognizes WCSU as a charitable organization; therefore your contribution is tax deductible
