Internal Programming Areas 

These areas benefit or service our members

and our chapter.

Living and Learning

This area was developed to encourage a member's personal growth --mentally, spiritually, civically and through family.  This area was not available prior to the 2009-2010 year.

Ways and Means

Each chapter needs to raise funds for normal operating expenses and also raise funds to help local and state organizations.  

Records and Recognition

This area is designed to help keep those important project records on file.  Ideas for chapter histories come from this area as do awards and incentive ideas.  This area promotes the USWT Project Recognition program; advertising and promoting outstanding projects in each programming area; and encouraging members to improve themselves.

Wishes and More - Priority Area

The WT Priority Area changes every 3 years.  Through May 2021 Wishes & More will be our Priority Area.  It began in 2004 in order to fill the gaps of other wish-granting charities serving children with terminal and life-threatening conditions. The founders were seasoned children’s wish granters who had served as volunteer members of the board of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota. Wishes & More grants wishes for infants and children with a life threatening or terminal illness to the age of 19. Wishes are often related to hunting, fishing, sports and other outdoor activities. Families can be supported with a Scholarship of Hope ($2000) or financial relief to families that lose their child before their wish could be experienced. 

Their overall goal is simple: to grant wishes to children with terminal and life-threatening illnesses and provide hopeful hearts, happy memories and assistance to those who love them.
