The Michael Wilkinson Foundation offers college and residential treatment scholarships to Texans impacted by addiction along with stigma-free informational resources for fighting substance misuse.
David Wilkinson, Michael's Dad
David hopes that the foundation has a positive impact on those struggling with addiction. As a longtime Arlington resident with a franchise business, he’s passionate about giving back to his community and making a difference in the lives of others.
Suzie Wilkinson, Michael's Stepmom
Through the foundation, Suzie strives to help educate people about mental health illnesses and their relationship with substance use disorders. Arlington has been home to Suzie since her high school days, after which she went to college and became a business owner in the area.
Diana Wilkinson, Michael's Mother
After Michael passed away, Diana felt called to help teens battling substance misuse. She works toward this through the foundation and beyond, finding comfort in helping others. Diana is a 20+ year Arlington resident and owns a franchise business.
Katie Wilkinson, Michael's Sister
Katie desires to make Michael—her older brother and best friend—proud by way of the foundation. For her, the foundation is a little piece of her family “giving back to others that need it most, because we too have been in a similar position in one form or another.” She studied fashion merchandising and works in the industry in the DFW area.
