MISSION FOR THE TRENT STETLER MEMORIAL FUND:
To advance mental health awareness within our community, encourage discussion and eliminate the stigma.
Raise money for mental health educational initiatives throughout Haverford Township.
Establish annual scholarships for HHS lacrosse players.
Promote the characteristics Trent was loved for: Inclusion, Leadership, Maximum Effort, Humor & Perspective via student initiatives throughout the Haverford School District.
While there is no longer a Trent Stetler Lacrosse Play Day each spring, funds raised during the five annual Play Days continue to provide valuable services for the Haverford community. We very much appreciate your support over the years and we continue to put your dollars to work.
