Hand Pile of Happy Group
WISE Mission
Serving needs and encouraging opportunities in Cook County.
WISE serves all people in Cook County, Minnesota.  Our members are committed to supporting well-being, prosperity, and educational growth throughout Cook County.  We do this through our fundraising efforts that provide grant-based support to teachers for special projects, $1,000 college scholarships for two graduating students each year, and grants to non-profit organizations that serve our community.

Our focus is supporting children, families, and education.

Based in Grand Marais, WISE members strive to:
  • Connect with a broad range of cultures, ages, backgrounds, causes, and aspirations

  • Help bring good ideas to life 
  • Fix what needs fixing
  • Raise money through auctions, sales and events. Have an idea? Let us know!
