We are pleased to announce Megan Butz Legacy of Hope. Established in 2023, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.

Our mission is to strengthen the lives of at-risk youth and young adults so they may be mentally healthy and receive needed mental health programming and support. We will support programs that tackle tough issues like depression, anxiety, mental health and suicide.

As an all-volunteer organization, we are committed to improving lives and assisting young people needing support. All donations will support community-based programs that prioritize strengthening mental health, building self-esteem, developing resilience and life skills, and expanding suicide awareness.



We aim to support youth and young adults in need, and in doing so will keep alive Meg’s spirit of giving and community volunteering.

With Meg’s Legacy of Hope, the goal is to assist and positively impact at-risk youth and young adults in the Greater Chicagoland area. Everyone deserves the opportunity to feel mentally healthy.

Our leadership team has many years of experience and a genuine commitment to helping youth and young adults. Our funding is used to support and provide assistance to organizations that request and qualify for grants.
