As we reflect on a year with unique challenges, all of us at WGI would like to express our admiration for a community that has risen despite an unprecedented global health crisis. Enthusiasm and anticipation continue to build until we can all gather and return to our way of life. That day cannot come soon enough.
2020 has seen too many things that hopefully we will only see once in our lifetime. While we've all faced unprecedented situations that we never imagined, the devastating impact of two canceled seasons is by far the most significant challenge WGI will ever meet. We are proud of creating a virtual platform that keeps our participants engaged with health and safety a priority while on a drastically reduced operating budget.
Although our day-to-day is different for now, one thing will remain unchanged: our collective spirit of giving. Please consider a year-end charitable donation to the Sport of the Arts. As you prepare for 2021, note that if you file a 2020 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return and claim the standard deduction, you may be able to deduct up to $300 for cash donations you pay to qualifying charities.
Any donation to our Invest In Indoor initiative helps us to continue our mission to educate and inspire the next generation of WGI.

Teddy Roosevelt once said that far and away, the best prize that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing. This time has underscored the importance of strength and resilience. With your help, WGI can continue this work worth doing building young people into tomorrow's educators and leaders.
We're in this together, and we will get through this together.
