About Us

About the Foundation

Mark’s dedication to his family and friends was truly inspiring and his love for children left a lasting impression on all who knew him. This foundation has been set up to continue supporting children in his name.

Mark was above all, a humanitarian. His compassion, intelligence and love created a light in the lives of others that was a testimony to the size of his heart. His laughter was big and contagious and his charisma could not be ignored. The positive impact his life had in this community and the world can and will be continued on through the good works of the Foundation.

Our Mission

The Mark Wandall Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization. We connect, uplift, and provide support for grieving youth who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian. We do this through our partnership program with Comfort Zone Camp and our partnered, equine assisted learning initiative. 

We also support our youth via our Quarterly Reconnects and through our College Scholarship Program. We aim to light the way toward a happy, healthy, and optimistic future for ALL the youth we serve.

The Mark Wandall Foundation’s programs not only benefit grieving children but serve as a tribute to Mark and Melissa’s daughter Madisyn Grace, who was born just two weeks after her father’s fatal crash.
