Village Keeper Grant

"It takes a village to raise a child."


About the Village Keeper Grant

In alignment with the theory, “it takes a village to raise a child,” the Wade’s World Foundation created the Village Keeper Grant. It is presented to deserving individuals who have given their time and efforts to provide a safe and productive environment for children and youth.
