Powerful Memories Drive Essential Services

The Grace Magill Fund is a testament to a young woman’s life cut far too short. The fund supports Edgewood’s work protecting and supporting adolescents struggling with mental and behavioral health issues.


The Grace Magill Fund

Anne and Jim Magill founded the Grace Magill Fund in 2005 after their daughter Grace died of suicide. For more than a decade, the fund has supported Edgewood’s work to promote adolescent well-being in Grace’s memory.

Edgewood’s former Chief Executive Officer, Nancy Rubin, explains the importance of the fund to the youth Edgewood helps each year:

“Edgewood sees kids from high-needs families and neighborhoods. We often see children in foster care who struggle with mental health issues. We expanded our scope to include children from all social and economic backgrounds including teens like Grace who could benefit from the project’s efforts.”

Today, the Grace Magill Fund impacts the youth that we serve by providing them with family-friendly, strengths-based, and comprehensive services. As a part of Edgewood’s Acute Intensive Services on its San Francisco campus, youth are provided the support they need to take steps forward and heal.
