Will to Succeed Foundation seeks to guide & inspire,
empower & improve the lives of those less fortunate
by providing financial, educational and other everyday resources to those identified as most in need.
Operating within the Kansas City Metro area, the Will to Succeed Foundation,
a non-profit donor advise 501(c)3 organization, facilitates programs, provides assistance
and resources to individuals, families and other charitable organizations
who have little or no access to other aid.
The “Will To Succeed” Foundation has helped over 100,000 individuals and has raised millions for the Kansas city community since its inception in 1993. Those numbers attest to a commitment of time, talents and resources contributed through its programs and initiatives, board members and many volunteers.
The Foundation currently sponsors over a dozen programs and initiatives where the organization, as well as its founders, are “hands-on” participants in all activities, as well as contributing financial support. Will and Senia’s children, as well as many others, are also actively involved because they believe it’s never too early for youngsters to learn about service to others.
Will and Senia closely monitor the Foundation’s involvements and take particular interest in mentoring the women and children who most benefit from their contributions.
“If there’s one person who we can impact, then our efforts are all worthwhile. If one family makes better life choices and their life turns out for the better, then we have succeeded.”
