Our Mission

Taylor’s Gift Foundation was founded in 2010 with a mission to Regift Life, Renew Health and Restore Families.

Increasing official organ donor registries is just the beginning of our purpose. Current areas of focus include:

  • providing Legacy Gifts to financially assist those touched by organ donation
  • changing the conversation of organ donation to be a positive one about life and encouraging an “Outlive Yourself” spirit.
  • awarding Taylor’s Gift Scholarships to graduating seniors who demonstrate an above and beyond “Outlive Yourself” spirit
  • The Taylor’s Gift team hosts events, delivers speaking engagements and encourages grassroots fundraisers to further our mission, educating audiences about organ donation and the gift each of us has within.

Outlive Yourself.

Our Story

A Spring Break trip to Colorado changed everything for the Storch family. After a tragic skiing accident took the life of Taylor Storch, a vibrant and gifted girl, it was in less than a months time that Taylor’s Gift Foundation was established.

Honoring the memory of their daughter Taylor, a thirteen year old girl with a true Outlive Yourself spirit, Todd and Tara Storch started Taylor’s Gift Foundation in an effort to encourage the giving spirit that she lived by.
