The Timothy P. O’Shaughnessy Foundation is a Wichita-based 501(c)(3) operating foundation established in 2016 to recognize, encourage, and support lifelong learning for deserving students from the Wichita area.  Our desire is to provide to motivated, driven graduating high school seniors, additional learning opportunities beyond the norm. We hope to make a positive difference in the world by encouraging students like Tim, students who will break the mold and will influence the world by their example, to take the paths not normally traveled.

The video below was presented at our most recent fundraising golf tournament and highlights comments from family members and current scholars.

Our logo is a visual interpretation of Timothy’s life

The Timothy P. O’Shaughnessy Foundation logo is modeled on a Chinese logographic character, reminiscent of Timothy’s journeys to the Far East, where he mastered the Chinese language.  It is also a graphic illustration of the “Vitruvian Man” of ideal proportions, sketched in 1490 by Leonardo da Vinci, a polymath like Timothy; and it is intuitively recognizable as including shape elements of the English language letter “T,”  open and open-ended on all sides, like Tim.
