Intention is the noun that comes from the verb, 'intend'. When you intend to do something it means that you feel it is necessary for you to do it. eg. 'My cat is hungry - I intend to feed the cat as soon as i get home', or 'It is my intention to feed the cat as soon as I get home'. Willingness is a noun that relates to how keen or willing you are to do something, If you have a willingness to do something, it means that you are keen or willing to do that thing. eg. He would really like to pass his exam = He has a strong willingness to pass his exam.

Intention is a plan to do, whereas willingness suggests a desire to do.
