Welcome to the Breanne C. Mahon Foundation, Inc. Website.

Paying forward for a better tomorrow…..

The Mission of the Breanne C Mahon Foundation is to encompass and carry on the goals and dreams of a young woman whose life plan was to dedicate time, ability and resources to others in the areas of education, healthcare, improvement of self, job training and those in need. Her vision was for a better tomorrow for others. Her long term vision would have been for her philanthropic efforts to be duplicated, creating a better community and future for all.

 


The Foundation was established to honor the memory of Breanne C Mahon, Virginia Beach resident, community volunteer, Kellam High School Graduate and Virginia Tech Student.

In the links that follow on this web site, you will learn about Breanne Mahon and the outstanding support the Foundation has received in its first two years. The foundation was founded by Breanne’s extended loving family whose only goal is to honor her memory. It was determined that the best way to do this was to continue Breanne’s propensity to give of herself to others. Unfortunately Breanne is not here to give of herself; consequently we chose to give to others in her name.

In the first two years of the Foundation all monies received were used to benefit a Kellam High School Student attending Virginia Tech University. Now the Foundation in its third year will benefit a Kellam High School Student planning to attend an accredited college in Virginia. As the Foundation's funding increases, we see a future for more inclusive causes that could benefit a greater part of the Virginia Beach Community.

As a young woman Breanne couldn't squeeze enough life into each given day. She was one who gave to each person she came into contact with. There was no exclusivity in her circle of friends and family. She leaves a legacy among friends and family that most cannot claim to do; accomplished in only 19 short years. For her to continue giving is something that would make her happy, as she felt that her life was worthwhile if she could do for others along the way.

The Foundation understands that at some point those who participate in the softball tournament and/or win the scholarship may never have known Breanne. But that is not the point. The point is to select someone that hopefully represents the values, love of life, honesty, loyalty and unconditional love of others that was the make-up of her personality

In January 2009, just short of her 19th birthday, a fatal auto accident claimed Breanne during Christmas break of her freshman year at Virginia Tech. She had made the Dean’s list that first semester.

Good luck to all who apply for the scholarship and to those who love softball mark your calendar. Thank you for your continued support, we hope to see you out there at Princess Anne softball complex this year for what promises to be a fun and rewarding time.
