Nathan Keibler (Think B4 U Act) Memorial Scholarship

Nathan Keibler attended Lenape Elementary School and was considered your "All American Boy." He loved to be outdoors - hunting, fishing and playing sports. He loved monster trucks, being a cub scout, and spending time with his family. He is survived by his parents and sisters, Kelsey and Breaunna Keibler.

Nathan died in a car accident at the young age of 8. This car accident was initiated by the mistake and careless act of his 16 year old cousin. Sometimes impulsive choices can lead to life shattering aftermaths. In his memory, Nathan's family and friends have established the Nathan Keibler (Think B4 U Act) Memorial Fund. Our hope is that if high school students mentor and lead by good examples, they can help a child to make good life choices. Perhaps, if they "Think B4 U Act" the outcome would be positive!

Tax deductible gifts can be made to Nathan’s scholarship (or any of the Community Foundation funds). Please make check payable to “Community Foundation” and write “Keibler” in the memo line. You will receive a thank you letter/receipt for tax purposes, and we will inform the family that you have made a gift.
