The Madie Nicpon 2-Gether Foundation was established in memory of our daughter, Madie Nicpon. Madie passed away suddenly on October 17, 2021 leaving her family and her community in a state of shock. The outpouring of support was overwhelming, generous and a testament to the person Madie was. The monetary gifts collected in her memory through the Go Fund Me site were the catalyst to start a charitable foundation in her name. This recognized 501 (c)(3) foundation was established to keep her spirit alive and to continue to help the causes for which she was so passionate.
Described by those who know her best as being “unapologetically herself”, Madie had mastered the art of appreciating the small things in life and being in the moment. Madie participated in two Mission trips with our Church of the Presentation’s Youth Ministry, Upper Saddle River, NJ. The Church was a part of the Mustard Seed Organization and over the summers of 2018 and 2019, the group traveled to Jamaica. These trips altered Madie’s life and solidified her passion to help and work with children. Moreover, Madie was a nerve graft recipient due to a surgical complication during her wisdom teeth extraction in 2017. As unfortunate as the surgical outcome was, the life altering benefit she experienced from her nerve graft impacted her greatly. She was an advocate for Donate Life and nominated to ride on the Donate Life float in the Rose Bowl Parade of 2019. The mission of the Madie Nicpon 2-Gether Foundation is to continue Madie’s charitable endeavors, honor her love of connecting people, and celebrate her legacy of being life-altering.
