Help Wise Fool survive by donating to our Go Fund Me!

During this time Wise Fool needs your support. Closing our doors has had a significant strain on the well being of Wise Fool and our coaches. Please consider making a donation to fill in the gaps of programming we can't run. $10 is the equivalent of an open studio drop in, $15 is one class and $30 is an hour of studio rental - every donation helps us. Thank you so much to our whole community for your support during this time.
