Hope for Tomorrow
The spirit of learning and entrepreneurship is woven into the fabric of Billy and Brenda Watterson, and it is thanks to that spirit that the Watterson Family Foundation was made possible. In that same spirit, the Watterson Family Foundation seeks to help increase access to underserved people and support sustainable programs.
From post-secondary education for First Generation College Students and leadership training in prisons to the pursuit of entrepreneurial dreams, the Watterson Family Foundation partners with organizations focused on lasting change. We care about providing access, not only to skills and knowledge, but to mentorship, open doors, and capital that will help individuals become self-sufficient and achieve their goals.
We believe that each of us was designed with unique gifts and talents to contribute to this world and that we are all called to create through our life’s work. We also recognize that for many, significant barriers exist to making these ideas reality. Our Hope for Tomorrow focus aims to eliminate barriers by providing opportunities, resources, and/or training for the pursuit of a goal or development of a business idea.
