Mission Statement

The Scooty Fund’s mission is to promote, support and advance culture surrounding mental health and wellness in ways that enhance the lives and well-being of young people.

Description

The Scooty Fund’s story begins with the life of Will Taylor (aka Scooty), who died by suicide at age 21, on March 4, 2017. One year later, Will’s sister, Kasey Taylor, friend Tara Nielson and fellow dedicated board members launched The Scooty Fund in his memory. Driven by its mission, The Scooty Fund focuses on encouraging conversations, de-stigmatizing mental illness, raising funds for research and resources, building supportive and open communities, educating others, and, above all, helping young adults prioritize their mental health in ways that work. The Scooty Fund pillars of action include social media, education and funding.

The Scooty Fund’s conviction that together there is a WILL and a WAY drives its efforts. In the words of Vice President Tara Nielson, "this is just the beginning of the story ... We are all leaders and learners."
