About the Foundation
The Chuckie F. Mahoney Memorial Foundation, formed by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mahoney III and family, was established in 2002 as a scholarship foundation in honor of Chuckie F. Mahoney IV, who died from suicide in February of 2002. The mission of the memorial foundation is to communicate that with proper training and education on suicide prevention, and by telling Chuckie’s story, lives can be saved. The Chuckie F. Mahoney Memorial Foundation strives to provide support and give to organizations that promote and advocate for mental health issues and suicide prevention. The National Alliance for Mental Illness and the American Association for Suicide Prevention are among these organizations.
The memorial foundation provides scholarships each year to graduating high school students in Southwestern Pennsylvania for the opportunity to pursue higher education. Today, the Chuckie Mahoney Memorial Foundation has expanded beyond student scholarships and now provides resources, training, and information on depression and suicide prevention for parents, educators, or professionals working with teens and young adults. The Chuckie Mahoney Memorial Foundation continues to pass on the legacy Chuckie left behind through the foundation which continues to give in his name.
Scholarships are given annually to student athletes in two schools, Weir and Burgettstown, that meet qualifications.
