The Lenny Wilkens Foundation:
The Lenny Wilkens Foundation funds organizations that help young people reach their full potential while honoring their dignity and self-respect, regardless of circumstances.
Healthcare is among the most basic of human needs. Healthy children are better learners. They attend school more consistently, focus better on their studies and enjoy stronger social development. With these advantages, children develop self-esteem that drives them toward a brighter future for their communities.
The Lenny Wilkens Foundation is built on three-time NBA Hall of Fame Coach Lenny Wilkens’ belief that every child deserves healthcare delivered with respect for his or her dignity. The Foundation has raised more than $8 million to support healthcare and education services for children, in need, throughout Seattle and the Puget Sound area. Our primary beneficiary is the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic. OBCC delivers a full range of healthcare services to children of all walks of life regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
