Grant Knighton memorial fund
The Grant Knighton Memorial Fund is one of the inspirations that began the MORE Gives Foundation. This memorial fund gives the ability to help those in the community to be able to receive support in their time of need.
Grant Knighton, son of MORE Gives founder Paul Knighton, made friends wherever he went. His exuberant personality was inviting and he had a special way of making people feel cared about. From his big smile to his funny quirks, his countenance shone brightly to all around him. The room quite literally lit up when he walked in. He was deeply loved by many and he leveraged his popularity to protect people, even if they were strangers.
Grant dreamed of becoming a lawyer. He was Incredibly patriotic and fiercely protective of those who were disadvantaged. Grant always offered to lend a helpful hand. In fact, he was preparing to serve a 2 year service mission when he tragically passed away in a car accident.
The Grant Knighton Memorial Fund is one way we remember and honor Grant, by giving back the way that he always did. We wanted to offer our MORE family opportunities to have funds available should they have a tragic event or an urgent need.
Trevor Peterson Memorial Scholarship Foundation
The Trevor Peterson Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a student who has a disability in the Hillsboro School District who has shown exceptional strength and courage in living with their challenges. It is a remembrance of a young man who showed great love, patience, and tolerance for everyone around him. He was quick to smile and although non-verbal, always eager for a "chat". The scholarship provides further educational opportunities from college to life skills training and recreational activities like swimming lessons, therapeutic horseback riding and art classes.
The Trevor Peterson Memorial Scholarship for Siblings is awarded annually to the brother or sister of a child with a disability in the Hillsboro School District who has shown outstanding support of their sibling, family, and community. These kids often put themselves last while helping their siblings and families get through each day. Past recipients have changed school rules to provide greater inclusion of kids with special needs, tutored their special needs siblings and friends, volunteered at Providence Child Center for Medically Fragile Children and so much more! Trevor had a great brother and sister who supported him and this scholarship celebrates the many other great siblings out there!
