It is with a heavy heart to announce that our beloved foundation will come to end in the Fall of 2018. We will no longer be accepting donations.
The Scott Hazelcorn Children's Foundation was created in honor of Scott Hazelcorn whose life was taken on September 11, 2001 in the attack on the World Trade Center. Scott was a 29-year-old bond trader who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of the North tower. He had had an open heart and a sunny nature. In describing Scott, his friends would say the following:
“Your problem was his problem.”
“He made you feel that you were the only person in the room.”
“He taught people to hug each other.”
“He was the one that made work fun.”
Scott loved being with children and putting smiles on their faces. He spoke of ultimately living a life where he could help to both educate and bring joy to their lives. It seemed so fitting for us, his family, to have created a foundation that honored him and brought his wishes to fruition.
The foundation would not have been possible without the help of the countless volunteers, friends and family who helped keep Scott's memory alive and meaningful. Our gratitude cannot be expressed enough, thank you.
