Olivia Scott Foundation
Your Courage, Hope, and Grace…is the reason we Give
Olivia Scott was a vibrant, ambitious teenager who loved her family, friends, and her life. Born in Western Pennsylvania in December 1991, she grew to become an active, athletic young lady who was an adamant Pittsburgh Penguins Fan and loved the band, “The Clarks”. In February, 2009, the middle of Olivia’s junior year in High School, Olivia was diagnosed with liver cancer. The prognosis was very grim from the discovery of the large tumor. Olivia’s positive attitude and unbelievable strength and courage throughout her battle became the anchor that her family and friends embraced to see her through to her final days. July 1, 2009, Olivia Jean Griffin Scott died….just moments after a telephone conversation with her two favorite Pittsburgh Penguin players, Max Talbot and Sidney Crosby.
The Olivia Scott Foundation was created by her family and others whose lives were touched by Olivia’s short, effervescent life and remarkable strength.
Our mission rests on three main tiers:
(1) Provide compassion assistance to youth in a life threatening or changing situation and donate to organizations that provide assistance to youth in these situations.
(2) Promote education in the form of grants and scholarships to those entering post-graduate schooling of any kind, and provide assistance for classroom material in a traditional educational setting.
(3) Provide assistance to organizations that promote sportsmanship.
