About Us

The Bryce Klingel Early Childhood Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, established in memory of Bryce Klingel, who passed away at the age of 3 ½ from a malignant melanoma brain tumor in December 2015. Despite the cruel and incurable disease, Bryce always shined bright with love and adventure. He spent a significant amount of time with dedicated and passionate therapists, who helped him live life to the fullest during his short 3 ½ years. Inspired by Bryce's love of school and the support and friendship he received,  the foundation was established to provide families in crisis financial support that will help ensure their child(ren) remain enrolled in a daycare/preschool setting. The Foundation also supports therapeutic evaluations and treatments for children effected by crisis and developmental delays.

EIN: 81-2190985.
