We asked our community of champions to share how they were finding ways to #SPARKWONDER and stay active while sheltering in place and were wowed by their responses!
So – shake off the weight of SIP and enjoy the optimism and FUN shared in the #SPARKWONDER video while also supporting the 49ers Academy COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

2021 Event TBD
This past year, Holiday Heroes went virtual with an amazing online event with a VIP component. We delivered Wonder boxes to guests and Be-A-Hero boxes to families in need. Both types of boxes included fun Holiday Heroes activities and surprises – and for the ones donated to vulnerable families, we included essential items (such as grocery gift cards, toiletries, gas cards, non-perishable food). Details on our 2021 event will be announced later this year.
Children’s Champions is a fun, family-friendly event benefiting at-risk children in the Bay Area. Make fitness fun with sports drills, clinics, and demonstrations with Stanford athletes, arts and crafts, face painting, balloons, and the opportunity to take photos with professional team athletes and mascots and more.
The Corporate Experiences program provides virtual “field trips” for high school students to teach them about entry level roles in STEM fields. Students get a behind-the-scenes tour of STEM corporations that are making a difference in their communities and the chance to meet relatable employees in a variety of entry level roles.
In April 2021, we will be launching our spring campaign, Spark Wonder. We will be raising funds for our legacy project, with the 49ers Foundation, in East Palo Alto. Stay tuned as we share details and get ready to help us continue to spark wonder in the lives of underserved youth.
To celebrate WWFC’s 25th Anniversary in 2019, we sponsored 25 joy-filled events for at-risk kids in the Bay Area. Our mission is to create moments of wonder that spark a lifetime of possibility and joy. Join us in continuing to celebrate and support these special events. Help us bring a joyful experience to an underserved child and ignite hope in their hearts.
