The Wesselt Initiative is a philanthropy venture created and led by Richard (Rich) Wesselt, who brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and strong faith to the organization.
At it’s heart, the Richard Wesselt Initiative forges ahead with the big bold goal of serving and providing for every member of it’s community, through programs designed to strengthen and empower each member. This strategy is designed to ultimately create a never-ending and sustainable circle of giving.
Our core values are focused on, creating strong family bonds, long lasting relationships and doing good for others.
The Richard Wesselt Initiative consists of three main focal points including;
The Leadership Academy
A program designed to nurture young members of our community, helping them to develop strong leadership, business and entrepreneurship skills. Through the development of such skill sets, youth are more prepared and empowered to succeed in future ventures, and ultimately be in a place themselves, to give back to their community.
The Wesselt Initiative is committed to lead by example through the financial assistance of various non-profit organizations in our community.
The Kenrick 12
The Kenrick 12 is an initiative designed to help the Bishop Kenrick Highschool community create and foster a strong connection between its alumni.
Through the above mentioned programs, The Richard Wesselt Initiate is rooted in creating strong community ties and working within our community to not only give back, but to empower each member to contribute.
It is Rich Wesselt’s lifelong mission to assist as many as possible though this initiative and the programs that if offers. He hopes that one day, this initiative will leave a lasting legacy of strength and community for his children, Logan and Carson to continue.
