THE STEVEN BRADLEY WARD FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
The Steven Bradley Ward Foundation was formed in memory of Steven Bradley Ward, whom passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2015 due to a pulmonary embolism. Steven had a larger than life personality and was a friend to all. Steven would also help his friends and family whenever needed. Through our journey of healing from this devastating loss, we formed the Foundation to keep Steven's legacy alive and financially help those in the Washington Country area experiencing a catastrophic loss or hardship due to reasons such as medical challenge or emergency, fire, natural disaster, job loss, etc. We also contribute to the Salvation Army, Washington City Mission, the DARE Program of the Washington County Sheriffs Department, and honoring veterans by placing wreaths at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. We have been able to give back $25,000 in our first 2 years and our mission and drive to help more continues to expand and grow. Also, Steven was an organ donor. With his passing, he was able to help many other people through the gift of life. Because of this, we also spread awareness about organ donation and becoming an organ donor through CORE.
"It's not so much what we have in this life that matters. It's what we do with what we have."
