Forty years ago, Lenny walked into a clinic in the Central District of Seattle and discovered a place where children could receive quality medical care regardless of their ability to pay.  “That day, I knew that making sure all families in our community have access to basic healthcare and education would become my family’s mission.  It’s a commitment of giving that is 40 years strong, and we are proud and humbled by how far we’ve come and how much work still lies ahead.”

The need for our help always seems to grow, especially in this time of economic uncertainty.   That is why we’d like you to join us in our $40 for 40 Years of Giving campaign.  While $40 may not seem like much, the power is in the number of us who choose to support the cause.  By saying yes to giving, you join the Lenny Wilkens Foundation to ensure our funds continue to:

- Provide much needed well-child visits for children 0-2 years old.
- Give families access to critical dental care.
-  Deliver a variety of mental health services.
- Provide access to chronic disease programs focused on asthma, diabetes and sickle cell anemia.
- Continue mentoring and education programs for low income families.

Please join us in celebrating Forty Years of Giving by donating $40 to the Lenny Wilkens Foundation. For more information on what your $40 can do or to give online, please visit our website:
