Donate and support a local organization

Living School Learn by DoingStarting in 2018, WPCampus began a tradition of donating a portion of our event budget to a local charity instead of providing attendees with conference swag. Learn more about our donation process

For this year’s event, we have chosen to support Living School. A representative from Living School will join us at our Opening Remarks to tell us more about their organization.
