Our Mission & Priorities

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”

E. E. Cummings

Mission

The Waggoner Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that provides opportunities to at-risk, low socioeconomic, and minority youth to help develop their potential and grow into healthy, educated, responsible, and productive adults.

The Waggoner Foundation Four Priorities

Financial Scholarships

Provide financial scholarships to assist students in elementary, middle schools, high school, junior college, and universities, to secure needed assistance with lunch fees, school supplies, before and after school care, book fees, athletic fees, field trip cost, technology if needed, and some assistance with educational cost. We will not be supporting any specific kinds of technologies, but we will let the applicants for scholarships indicate to us what they need.  However, our main goal is assisting our children with the things they need.

Education Scholarships

The Waggoner Foundation can serve a significant role in assisting to educate the public about our forgotten children who hope to be excellent. For the past 23 years Spencer Waggoner has educated at risk, special needs, and student athletes from elementary, middle school, high school, college, he is an author, father, life parent coach, who was once the kid he hopes to help find their way in life.  Our foundation uses teamwork, trust, inclusion, and a variety of other topics that relate to our bottom line as a foundation.  Spencer hopes to travel and speak to children about these opportunities.

Corporate Sponsorships

The goal of The Waggoner Foundation will be to secure and to maintain sponsorships from corporations in order to accomplish the endeavors of The Waggoner Foundation. Our goal is to involve sponsoring corporations in the efforts of the foundation including educating corporations about the importance of at risk youth having the necessary tools needed to be successful and pursues careers in law enforcement, fire departments, STEM programs, special education, community leadership, and public service.

Monetary Donations

The final goal of The Waggoner Foundation will be to secure monetary donations to subsidize scholarships to at risk, special needs, athletes, and minority students for the purchase of lunch fees, school supplies, before and after school care, book fees, athletic fees, field trip cost, technology if needed, some assistance with educational cost, and to support other efforts of the foundation. While corporate sponsorships will certainly provide some funding, our hope is that that TWF can also benefit from individual donations and fundraising events.
