The Mission of the Wenk Foundation is to enrich the lives of children and animals who are compromised by physical, emotional, or mental disabilities or at risk by circumstance.
The Wenk Foundation is an independent family charitable foundation dedicated to providing support and/or leadership for programs, initiatives and communities that encourage and promote the emotional, physical and mental health of youth and animals.
The Wenk Foundation will develop and/or support initiatives that improve the quality of life for youth, especially those that incorporate an appreciation of the arts, animals and nature.
THE POWER OF HARMONY Initiative will help enrich the lives of young men in the Ohio youth prison system by introducing music as a medium to channel creative talents, introduce its therapeutic impact, encourage a positive, cooperative spirit and establish singing as a core personal and community asset. The four cornerstones of the program are Performance, Education, Participation and Mentorship. Reach out on our Contact Us page to learn more about the program.
