Astonishing Expectations Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity that is committed to creating a world where young people with big dreams may thrive. Our primary purpose is to raise the expectations that society has for young individuals with physical, financial or personal challenges and the expectations that those individuals have for themselves. We strive to help young people fulfill their goals related to education, career, and self-sufficiency and personal enrichment.
Our first project is a scholarship to provide financial assistance to a local Prince William County graduating high school senior who has been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum to attend Northern Virginia Community College. Please check out our Scholarship page for more information on The H. Wayne Bowman Astonishing Expectations Scholarship.
We are also committed to honoring the musical talent and ambitions of high school students in Jackson, MS where the long-standing challenges of racial injustice, poverty, hunger, and other challenges get in the way of promising young men and women who are working on their dreams.
