Matching donations in support of students at Foothills Academy

In addition to serving on the Board of Nickle Family Foundation, Tom Aylesworth was a co-founder in 1979 of Foothills Academy, a school for children with learning disabilities.

One of the goals Tom and his co-founder, Gordon Bullivant, had was to ensure that no child was turned away from Foothills Academy because of financial limitations. Much of Tom’s focus was on funding tuition abatement for low-income students. To help ensure that vital goal continues to be met despite Tom’s passing, Nickle Family Foundation has established the Tom Aylesworth Legacy Fund. Each year income from the fund will be forwarded to Foothills Academy to provide tuition relief for Foothills’ students.

Nickle Family Foundation matched, dollar for dollar, all donations to the Tom Aylesworth Legacy Fund, up to a maximum of $500,000.
