G.WIZ recently received a significant financial donation to assist its current renovations. The Floyd C. Johnson and Flo Singer Johnson Foundation have donated $150,000 to help fund construction.
“Flo really had an interest in G.WIZ, and she visited the center several times,” said board member Diane Barth.
Sara Rankin, G.WIZ CEO, says the donation is set to cover building maintenance and sponsor the museum’s new educational exhibits, now called AIDES.
