Memorial Fund

For the Love of Conor Foundation

For the Love of Conor Foundation was established in memory of our beloved son, Conor Costello who passed away in 2008 due to substance abuse. Conor was a gifted and talented young man whose potential was lost through addiction.

The mission of the For the Love of Conor Foundation is to support organizations that elevate children, families and pets in our community and promote positive life choices for youth and young adults. We provide funds to worthy organizations that elevate and inspire the youth in our community so they can experience and find their life’s passion through sports, music and the arts, just as Conor so proudly did when he was young! By supporting these programs, we believe it will lead to positive life choices for young people.

For the Love of Conor Foundation, established through the Arizona Community Foundation, has raised funds from friends, family and colleagues. We are happy to report that we have awarded over $141,000 in grants to over 32 nonprofit organizations such as: notMYkid, Boys Hope Girls Hope, Genesis City, Young Artist Society, Camp Colley, 100 Pedals, PALS (Parents of Addicted Love Ones), Be Kind People Project, Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Foundation, Drug Elimination Family Awareness Program (Fiesta Mexicana), Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, The Harmony Project, Rosie's House and many others.
