About Us

The Wood Family Foundation (WFF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in June 2011 by Chicago Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood and his wife, Sarah. The Wood Family Foundation is small but mighty organization that thrives with a grassroots approach to implementing new and creative programs to reach Chicago's most at risk kids on an individual level.

Despite the curveballs that may come their way, every child should be given a chance in life, regardless of resources, opportunity or geography.

That's why the Wood Family Foundation prides itself as an advocate for Chicago area children, providing support not just on a one-time basis, but through long-term relationships with kids, their families, and their communities, ensuring the consistency and emotional structure they need to succeed.

We believe all kids have potential. We're here to help them swing for the fences.
