"We just received a fabulous grant from your organization. You make it possible for us to get those "extras" like sensory toys, ride on toys, gross motor equipment. Thank you!"
"My daughter just received her new car seat [to fit her AFOS] and she loves it! The space it provides for her AFOs is amazing. Thank you so much!"
"I would like to say thank you to the WillPower Foundation for the grant monies we used for therapeutic riding lessons for my daughter. The riding lessons have helped with her self-confidence and encouraged her to try new things, which has never been easy for her. The smile on her face shows how comfortable and confident she is becoming. Thank you for the amazing gift you have given my daughter."
“We have been super grateful to have found the WillPower Foundation and to have been given a grant to allow us to continue to work with our son, Gabriel and Kathleen Becker, Speech-Language Pathologist on Grabriel's social skills over the course of the last couple of months. The progress we have seen has been phenomenal. We’re so grateful to have found people that were willing to support us and help us come through what has been a pretty challenging time."
"The WillPower grant helps my advocate to review all parts and current evaluations being performed (old IEP and work with my daughter's doctor and support staff). The advocate has helped me work with the school district to develop an appropriate individual education plan for my daughter."
"Thank you so much! I am extremely grateful to WillPower for help making my home more safe for my son. It has been extremely difficult finding funding in order to buy the window guards for our upstairs windows to protect Jonah from trying to get out. But now we are much more at ease that he can now play and sleep in his room and be safe."
“For the WillPower Foundation, every child really does count. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what your income is, your child has a diagnosis and the goal from the WillPower Foundation is that every child is somehow given a way to have fun and grow at the same time. So that was really special to us and thats why we really love the WillPower Foundation.”
"I can't begin to express what your donation meant to my daughter. She loved every moment of her therapeutic horseback riding. The camp not only helped her meet her physical goals, but it helped her make significant strides in her confidence. Having Cerebral Palsy can be a burden to her because she sometimes feels different, but camp gave her hope. She told me that she felt comfortableat camp. It is difficult for us to see our daughter struggle with the constant demands of her physical disability. This process gave her so much joy and self-assurance. What a gift! Please know we won't forget your kind gesture. Thank you again."
"It is very tough having a child with autism. Economically it's difficult as well. Many of their needs are not covered by insurance, or you have to travel far distances to get services. WillPower helped us by paying for some sensory therapy that will help my son with his delays and challenges. You are a blessing. thank you for caring and making a difference in our lives!"
