The Whitney Young Children’s Foundation was founded in 2006, when our youngest child was hit and killed by a hit-and-run, drunk driver. Whitney loved kids and she had a special way with them. We decided to honor her memory by supporting children’s causes. The mission of the WYCF is to encourage children and young adults to triumph despite life's challenges and to dream, live, love and laugh in ways previously unimaginable.Our vision is to fulfill this mission by making grants to 501(c)(3) organizations who deliver services to challenged children and young adults, and in particular, poor and minority individuals and those with disabilities.
