During the past week, the Eisele family has come together to cover the cost of Nick's funeral on their own. They would like to use the funds that have been donated for a greater purpose.
The Eiseles would like to make donations in Nick's memory to nonprofit organizations. They plan to also establish a scholarship fund for Newtown High School students in Nick's memory.

On Sunday, May 24, 2020, the Eisele family was delivered news that no family wants to ever receive: Nick, 23, had been killed in his home.
Understandably, the Eisele family is devastated.
Nick is survived by his parents, John Eisele and Michele Krasowski; his twin brother Michael; and two sisters, Jessica and Gianna. He is also survived by a girlfriend, to whom he was devoted. "He really loved her, and made it his mission in life to protect her," Michael said.
Nick was living in Derby, Conn. A former Sandy Hook resident, he was a 2016 Newtown High School graduate.
Nick worked with his father, who owns a landscaping-irrigation company.
"He was super interested in planting, and growing, which goes hand in hand with working with my dad, who works in landscaping," his brother said. "He threw himself into everything he loved." John had been planning to eventually put the company into Nick's name, according to Michael.
Nick was also known for his love of art and fashion. He loved the way things looked, his brother said. "His space, he loved making sure everything had a home," said Michael, who added his brother "loved ordering unique apparel.
"He may not have had the best fashion," Michael added with a laugh, "but he loved clothing and the different brands he would represent."
While he did not have any pets of his own, Nick also had a soft spot for his mother's German shepherds, Trooper and Sandy. "He just loved them, so so much," Michael said.
Nick's father, John, has asked for help with funeral expenses. That's what this gofundme account is for. It has been launched at the request of John, and all funds raised will go directly to John and the family for Nick's funeral. John has indicated that any funds that go above the funeral costs will be donated.
John is a friend, and I am honored to be able to help him and his family during this time.
On behalf of the Eisele family, thank you in advance for anything you can contribute.
