Megan's passion for art began the first time that she picked up a crayon. Her art inspired all who knew her and her memorial fund will be used to support local art programs, especially for children.

In lieu of flowers, Megan's family suggests remembrances be made in her name to the Megan Pizzitola Memorial Fund

"So many Angels, so much love, thank you all for your kindnesss, compassion, and the love you've shown our family during this very hard time"

Greetings to the family and friends of Megan Pizzitola. Thank you for your generous donations, blessings, kindness, support, and love.

As you know, this September, after the unexpected passing of our beautiful Megan, we set up the “Megan Pizzitola Memorial Fund”. Donations to this fund, as well as the proceeds from the ongoing sale of Megan’s artwork will be used to support Megan’s passion for art and children. We have been so humbled and grateful for the outpouring of support that we have received for this cause.

We are writing to thank you for your donation and to tell you about the first grant recipients from the fund.

The first is the organization Art with Heart. Art with Heart is a nonprofit based in Seattle, dedicated to supporting the emotional well-being of children adversely affected by hardship, using creativity to lead to inspired possibilities. Since 2002, they have created healing, therapeutic books that bring the best in therapy with the best in illustration to help children and teens facing distress and hardship, also offering training and programs to help children.

The second recipient is the Redemption Youth Ranch. The Redemption Youth Ranch is a mentorship-based program designed to help hurting and disadvantaged children. Each child is paired with a mentor and an outdoor activity to facilitate healing, encouragement, character and growth. Activities include horsemanship, horseback riding, archery, fishing, art and photography. This special ranch was founded by Megan’s cousins Chad and Roxy Young and she was so proud of them!

Thank you all for your generosity. Our involvement in the Megan Pizzitola Memorial Fund helps to continue Megan’s impact and legacy. Wishing you a warm and wonderful New Year.

So sorry for the loss of your daughter. I'm Lexie Burnham's godmother and I know how much she loved your daughter. Also I'm an art lover and am so happy to know that this memorial will support young children to enjoy art.
