The purpose behind the Tanner Kapp Legacy Foundation is twofold: to help bring mental health resources to youth who are struggling with depression, and to support families with the financial burden of unexpected loss of a child due to suicide.
Tanner Michael Kapp was a young man with a heart full of adventure. He lived life to the fullest and brought light into every room. Tanner passed by suicide at the young age of 22.
As his family was shocked to learn he had taken his life, they were supported by Tanner's community, who raised money to help his parents with unexpected expenses. Inspired by their generosity, Tanner's parents decided to pay it forward by starting the Tanner Kapp Legacy Foundation, and providing mental health resources for struggling youth and offering supplemental support to families who are burdened by unexpected costs due to early loss of life.
Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step.
