The Rosebud Foundation began at the root of love and family. Like a rose, the Foundation grows so that its beauty can be appreciated and shared with others. A Charitable Trust was created by Francis S. Wilson Jr. and Kathryn W. Wilson to support them in retirement and resulted in the creation of The Rosebud Foundation to then support others after their deaths. They lovingly called their granddaughters, their “little Rosebuds,” hence the name. It is the intention of the Rosebud Foundation to support organizations helping children and young adults reach their full potential in life. Nurturing young roots and developing the essentials provide great results.
