We Kan!

Welcome, 2023 We Kan! Partners. Your donations make you a part of the "We" and therefore a partner in our work to help preserve and sustain rural culture. Your support helps us facilitate peer-to-peer training, share functional information, and do grassroots projects that help communities be the best they can be at being themselves. "We" means we're all in this together. "Kan" is an affirmative that we can move communities forward. The "!" signifies the enthusiasm that is required for this work.
