About Will’s Way

Founded by Scott Bolick and Brittany Lothe after the premature birth of their son, Will, Will’s Way Foundation provides support grants and solutions to improve children’s health in the San Francisco Bay Area.

During Will’s five month stay in the NICU at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Scott and Brittany experienced first hand the challenges of having a child with a life-threatening illness—both on themselves and other parents.

Our Mission

Advance family centered care in the Bay Area to improve outcomes for children and families.

Our Focus

  • Research, education, and tools
  • Support grants and experiences for parents and caregivers during times of need

Our Operating Principles

  • Target investments in areas of focus
  • Partner to increase impact
  • Focus on outcomes
  • Engage Will in the cause as he gets older

We hope that you will join us in advancing Will’s Way in the San Francisco Bay Area!
