Despite the curve balls that may come their way, every child should be given a chance in life, regardless of resources, opportunity, or geography.
That’s why The Wood Family Foundation prides itself as an advocate for Chicago area children, providing support not just on a one-time basis but through long-term relationships with kids and their communities,
ensuring the consistency and the emotional structure they need to succeed.0051-Warm_Wishes_Event_2012-300x200
Our program efforts are focused in four Chicago neighborhoods, Austin, Lawndale, Humboldt Park, and Englewood.
Our programs currently include;
a free summer baseball clinic at Englewood’s Ogden Park, Warm Wishes, a holiday program in which we adopt a school and provide each student with a new winter coat and toy(s), and our recently established scholarship fund in partnership with the UIC Honors College that covers 4 years of tuition and housing.
