Remembering Matt Stever
The Matt Stever Fund
Administered by the Rotary Club of Picton
The Matt Stever Fund was created to assist families in the Quinte area who suffer hardship due to family crisis, specifically but not limited to, hardship caused by the illness or death of a child.
Matt Stever was a promising young Prince Edward County man who was living and working in Taiwan when he sustained a serious and eventually fatal accident. His parents, Roger and Mary Stever, were in part supported during this time by the PEC community. This support allowed them to be at their son’s bedside following his accident.
They felt that, based on the their experiences, they wanted to set up a fund which would allow other families who might go through this wrenching experience to have the benefit of the support that they were offered. Correspondingly, with the left over funds and with the fund subsequently raised by the community, they have established this fund in the memory of their son which the Rotary Club of Picton is honored to administer on their behalf. To date, three families have been supported from the fund.
To this point, the funds have been supplemented by fundraisers in memory of Matt Stever which have been put on by many local organizations.
At the same time it is hoped that the community as a whole will see the value in maintaining this fund and donate to its purpose. Donations can be made to the Rotary Club of Picton - Matt Stever Fund and sent to the Rotary Club of Picton, Box 6015, Picton, Ontario K0K 2T0.
