Our Mission

The Wil-Power Foundation exists to inspire and equip people of all ages through physical, social, and cognitive means in order to assist them in achievement of their highest potential in sport and in life.

Our Vision

We envision promoting healthy communities through education, revitalization, wellness and character building.

Our Key Principles

  1. The Wil-Power Foundation is a foundation made up of compassionate, loyal, and knowledgeable professionals that have invested time in their personal growth and integrity.
  2. All recipients of services through the Wil-Power Foundation will be positively influenced with the use of values, self-esteem building, and decision making skills.
  3. The foundation focuses on helping young people develop the skills, assets, and attributes needed to reach their full God-given potential.
  4. The foundation cultivates a lifestyle that promotes wellness, longevity, and success.

The Wil-Power Foundation wants to have an impact in the following ways:

  1. Assistance in funding and delivery of non-profit programs which educate and prepare minors for life threatening substance related issues and exposures.
  2. Education of athletes and non-athletes about fitness and wellness.
  3. Delivery of physical rehab and injury prevention to the communities we serve.
