W. Wright Foundation

The W. Wright Foundation was established in 2016 to fulfill the wishes of Wyvon Wright in creating a scholarship for female citizens of the United States of America.


We have already provided over $100,000 of scholarships for women and Wyvon Wright’s legacy will continue to impact many women in the coming years.
