About the Wender Weis Foundation for Children
The Wender Weis Foundation for Children (WWFC), founded in 1994 by then 23-year-old Stanford University and Northwestern (Kellogg) MBA graduate Amy Wender, is a 501©(3) nonprofit organization committed to assisting at-risk children to develop self-esteem, confidence and a sense of camaraderie. Through local sports and arts programs, children learn self-importance, trust and teamwork, and gain a sense of accomplishment. WWFC partners with organizations that address the emotional and psychological needs of children in crisis as well as their physical needs for shelter and care. WWFC raises funds and awareness for these groups through its annual Holiday Heroes fundraising event.
