Evan R. Hansen Legacy Foundation
Purpose & History
We are a philanthropic organization that raises money through our annual golf outing fundraiser to create scholarships for students entering the medical field that are willing to travel to places in most need of health services. We also work to promote mental health awareness in the community.
The Evan R. Hansen Legacy Foundation was established by his parents, Chuck and Mary, to carry out philanthropic activities in memory of their son. The first donation funded a summer intern at the Merciful HELP Center, where Evan worked the summer of 2017.
