Wender Weis Foundation
Our mission is to create moments of wonder that spark a lifetime of possibility.

Holiday Heroes will be celebrated in three very special ways this year. First, in accordance with California guidelines, we will welcome vaccinated guests ages 12+ and guests 12 and under attending with a vaccinated adult outdoors at Oracle Park for a magical evening of in-person activities to raise spirits as we raise funds. Next, for those who choose not to attend in person, we will be sending you Holiday Heroes Wonder Boxes filled with sleigh-full of goodies and treats. Finally, our 2021 goal is to bring joy and to raise spirits for 300 underserved children (either through delivery of be-a-hero boxes or attendance at Holiday Heroes).
Returning in Spring 2022
Children’s Champions is a fun, family-friendly event benefiting underserved 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.
With Children’s Champions on hiatus this year, we introduced the 2021 SparkWonder campaign. This year, we are building a New Fitness Zone at Joel Davis Park in East Palo Alto. Thanks to your generosity, we will break ground and cement a legacy of fitness and fun in East Palo Alto!
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.
