The Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting better lives and livelihoods in the North Country of New Hampshire for over 25 years. While grants keep us going, your donations are also key to helping us continue serving the artists, makers, and low to moderate income small business owners who depend on us for resources, market access, and educational opportunities.

Thank you so much for your donation. Your support means the world!




Support WREN’s Annual Fund Today!

What a couple of years it has been! With much hope we can put the pandemic behind us. As a community, our board, volunteers, staff, grantors, sponsors, and you came together keeping WREN resilient and strong. THANK YOU!

During the past year, we slowly transitioned into hosting more in-person events. We’ve received tremendous interest and support at our business and enrichment workshops, gallery openings, artist talks, and through collaborative partnerships with local businesses and organizations. All of these interactions have strengthened WREN’s commitment to building and sustaining even stronger community connections.

With your support we will continue to focus on projects to increase our capacity and our commitment to building community:

• Develop and pilot solutions that will lead to higher earnings and long-term financial success for North Country families through WREN’s Women’s Work Initiative.

• Offer more in-person technical assistance & educational opportunities.

• Establish the WREN Learning Center, a space for in-person classes & workshops, private one-on-one training & mentorship, meeting space, and a state-of-the art media studio.

• Extend our community outreach through our marketing and communications efforts.

• Engage more community members in free family-friendly activities.

• Increase sponsorships & partnerships.

Together we can strengthen community, enhance our long-term viability, and reinforce the resilience that
WREN continues to embody after nearly 30 years as a nonprofit.

By investing in local small businesses and their ability to compete in today’s digital world, WREN supports economic innovation in the North Country.

Your donation to our Annual Fund will help us meet our goals and sustain WREN’s mission: “Supporting better lives and livelihoods through education, economic development, and community engagement in the North Country.”

Please make a gift to our FY 2023 Annual Fund today, and together we will keep gaining momentum and creating a sustainable future for WREN and the North Country.
