Description

The WV Foundation, founded by Nick VandenBosch and Terrence Williams in 2011, is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization based out of Muskegon, Michigan. The WV Foundation is dedicated to guiding and inspiring Michigan’s youth by using sports and entertainment as a vector toward higher education and community growth. Since 2012, The WV Foundation has awarded over $35,000 in scholarships to participating athletes

Our largest event is the Muskegon All-Star Classic ( MAC ). This annual event is the only all-star high school football game in West Michigan. The participating athletes are nominated by their coaches from currently 36 schools over 5 counties. The student athletes’ musts be graduating seniors who have shown leadership and talent that stand out from their peers. The MAC gives graduated senior athletes an opportunity to showcase their talents with the best student athletes in West Michigan, as well as become eligible for one of our many scholarships opportunities from the WV Foundation. Participation in the MAC gives senior athletes one last chance to perform for their community, as well as receive individual attention from college scouts around the country. This is a comprehensive program which also encourages the student athletes to pursue higher education outside of sports, whether it be college or skilled trades. Following each practice, we provide speakers from many different fields and professions to help prepare student athletes for life after high school. Our goals are to facilitate participants in enrolling in post-secondary education, as well as internship placement assistance.
