The Wilson Family Foundation, Inc. is a lifelong family dream that is now being realized. For more than 30 years, John and Mary K. Wilson have given their time, energy and talents to support dozens of Tampa Bay area charities, while also raising three sons, Paul, Mark and Patrick Wilson. Now that they are each grown, they share mom and dad's passion for giving and formed the foundation as a family last year, designated a 501(c)3 non-profit organization by the IRS on March 15, 2015.

The mission of The Wilson Family Foundation is a simple one: helping those in need with a particular focus on veterans and first responders, children with special needs and promoting the arts. We have no salaries or paid positions. Our board is strictly volunteer so that all of the proceeds after our event costs can go directly to those in need. Our primary fundraising tool is the Wilson boys' charity band "The Wilson Van." Learn more about the band at TheWilsonVan.com and Facebook.com/TheWilsonVan.
