These scholarships are all made possible by you! Donations of handmade items and funds for this year’s scholarships were made and gifted by women who attended last year’s gathering. We share an amazing raffle throughout the weekend and all funds from the raffle go toward scholarships. In addition, we have added an official Spirit Weavers Merchandise booth and all proceeds will also go to next years Scholarship fund! If you feel called to donate or help with our scholarship fund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Spirit Weavers Gathering recognizes the importance of Solidarity and Allyship work. A variety of scholarships is just one of the many ways we continue to open the space for all walks of life. Thank you for patiently being a part of the dialogue as we strive to create a unique and diverse gathering.
