Working with the Wilder Foundation to translate housing materials into Spanish was a rewarding experience. I was happy to know I could help those in need during COVID-19, while working from home.

I have been volunteering with Amherst Wilder Foundation for 6 years and I find it interesting and fulfilling at the same time. This organization is well-managed and a positive force in our community. We are lucky to have them!

I have known of the Wilder Foundation, and the great things it does for the community, for many years. I have just today applied for volunteer work with this organization and hope to hear from them soon.

Although not associated with the Wilder Foundation, I have become aware, through somehistorical research, of the Wilder's Family's (esp. Fanny) dedication and generosity, to the indigent and needy of St. Paul/East Metro, for than 107 years. As Pioneering Minnesotans They andthe Foundation give true meaning to the words "Minnesota Nice"
