|The Wellmark Foundation
For over 20 years, The Wellmark Foundation has worked to provide financial and technical assistance resources to communities and nonprofits throughout Iowa and South Dakota working to advance health status improvement. The Wellmark Foundation is proud that the Partnership @ DrugFreeIowa.org has been a recent grantee advancing important work in the area of media literacy.
Media literacy is the next frontier of education. Schools already do an excellent job teaching traditional literacy and math skills, but children are now growing up in a screen-based media world rather than the print-based media world of earlier generations. Although this change brings great potential, it also brings several risks. Children therefore need help to learn the critical thinking skills needed to understand the media and their effects. We share the Partnership’s belief that media literacy is part of the answer to a complicated problem, and that Iowa is poised to become a national leader in media literacy education due to the Partnership’s groundwork.

Even then, the spirit of Tomorrow Making was evident as Giannini played a vital role in the restoration of San Francisco after the great earthquake and subsequent fire in 1906. While we have grown to become one of the world’s most respected financial institutions, it is still our desire to Transform Tomorrow, and create a better financial future for each and every one of our clients, that drives all that we do.
