About The Mitchell Chang Foundation
The Mitchell Chang Foundation formed after Mitchell drowned at Love to Swim School, owned by Mary Reilly-Magee, in February 2018. When Mitchell passed away, his family quickly knew they couldn’t let him or his bright light be forgotten.
The Mitchell Chang Foundation exists to honor Mitchell’s exuberant and compassionate spirit by continuing his good story.
The Foundation has two goals
The first is to provide safety-conscious playgrounds that spark joyful play, encourage imagination, and create life-long memories.
The second is to encourage others to “be the good story” as Mitchell was. Mitchell’s servant heart led him to help others in need. Through his actions, he showed others what it meant to “be the good story.” Good story moments can be as big as building a park or as small as helping a friend who fell stand up. These moments build on each other to create something larger than ourselves: an overwhelmingly good story.
