WVML Foundation moves to new donor management tool
The WVML Foundation is moving to a new donor management tool provided by CanadaHelps, a Canadian registered non-profit. This tool enables the Foundation to improve communication with our donors and save on costs, meaning we can donate more funds directly to Library initiatives.
