ABOUT THE REACH FOUNDATION
The REACH Foundation is a 501(c)3 foundation created by Mark and Wendy Wilson in 2000 to help children in need physically, socially, and financially.
The REACH Foundation was originally established to financially aid educational scholarships, continued education and training for educators, unique and beneficial educational programs, and programs that encourage social and civic responsibility in and out of the classroom. The primary mission of the Foundation is to reach out to youth and provide motivation and assistance to those who have the aptitude to excel at a higher level.
The REACH Foundation has been working to increase the number of children touched by their contributions. The REACH Foundation also strives to raise awareness, provide motivation and generate funding for organizations including Make A Wish, St. Jude, Cystic Fibrosis, YMCA as well as groups that have similar goals.
The REACH Foundation is excited to partner with nonprofit organizations all across the country to help children and hopes that this campaign inspires and motivates others while making it easy to make a difference. Funds raised from this campaign will assist a variety of organizations helping children today.
