About the Foundation

Donate to the Elizabeth Schickel Foundation

Established in 2015, The Elizabeth Schickel Foundation, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), was created to honor the extraordinary spirit of Elizabeth Schickel, an inspiring young woman who was called home to God after a year long battle with brain cancer.
