Support Courtney's Legacy

$75,615 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 969 people in 35 months
In a moment, life can change. For these 4 children that moment was April 22! That was the moment that their mother was ripped away from them by tragedy KSTP 5 News Coverage  . Courtney Monson was a loving mother, daughter, sister,  cousin, friend, workout buddy and so much more. She loved her Children, E (12), J (9), B (3) and M (2). She strived to provide them with the best life possible! It is our aim to help that legacy she hoped for, live on. 


The money will be placed into a savings account under the custodial care of the Children's grandma (Courtney's Mother) Kris. The funds will help offset the cost for a funeral and to aid in allowing the kids to remain in their sports and aid grandma and grandpa in adding 4 kids into their home. 

Courtney was involved in Church at Hope Fellowship as well as Anoka Ramsey Athletic Association. Please help us bless her Children and Mother in this time of grief!  

I (Tyler Roland, Ethan's Youth Pastor) have spoken with Kris (Grandma) and she has expressed such a thankful heart to all the support and prayers! 

Thank You for loving these littles! 

God Bless!

While I am not trying to discourage people from donating on the “Go Fund Me” site, I would like to offer a reminder that: though not as convenient, there is an account at Affinity plus Credit Union that will give the family all of the money “we” want them to have. At this rate over $5000.00 will go to this site, 100% will go to the family if you take the time to drop by Affinity Plus Credit union, I wish I would have read that earlier before my donation, but I must say Courtney and Bryce would have been amazed by the response of so many caring souls. This is surely a cause that we all want to keep the momentum going and make sure this family and these kids get all they need.
