Alex Kollar Memorial Fund

October 1st, 2021, living his best life doing what he loved the most, our loving son, partner, friend, and teacher returned to spirit. Now we must say “see ya later” to a BEAUTIFUL, radiant, beam of light - Alex Kollar.  

Alex’s commitment to helping others, creating change and saving the planet has been a driving force throughout his life. 

The very best way we can High 5 our cherished buddy is by bringing his commitment to life. Alex developed a deep connection with Rwanda throughout the three consecutive summers he spent there. It was there that he saw a bigger picture of the world; serving and mentoring at risk youth and forging deep relationships.

Together with the Kefa Project , Alex’s family has initiated a memorial fund that will create and expand farming projects in Rwanda. This project teaches vulnerable families how to grow food and create sustainable income. Your donation makes this world a better place…this was Alex’s dream.

“On my deathbed, I won’t wish anything was different. The places, the people and all that damn powder. Now we just have to save the planet so our grandkids can do it too.”  ~ Alex Vincent Kollar
