About the Zach Hoefler Memorial Trust

Supporting Our Community & Its Families

Zach and the Hoefler family

"Because we knew you, our lives were changed for the better! Zach was an amazing young man whose legacy will live on forever."

The Zach Hoefler Memorial Trust is a filed and approved 501c3 corporation established in 2018 in memory of Zach Hoefler who died from a brain tumor (pilocytic astrocytoma). In their journey with Zach at Dallas Children’s Medical Center, the Hoefler family witnessed an incredible need for the assistance of families with children diagnosed with serious pediatric illnesses. It is important for families to feel loved and supported during this difficult time. It is from that vision that the Zach Hoefler Memorial Trust was created.

The Zach Hoefler Memorial Trust will provide emotional, spiritual, financial, and educational assistance to families who have children diagnosed with pediatric illness. Assistance can take many forms including resources, travel and hotel accommodations, medical claim cost assistance, and even college scholarships for siblings whose college savings have been accessed to pay medical claims. We have a vision of families being supported in the most difficult of times, providing a community of caring to allow families to focus on what is truly important: their families.
