WELCOME TO THE AMANDA GEISSLER MEMORIAL FOUNDATION INC.
Amanda’s passion for women, children, and education started with a mission trip to Ghana, Africa where she volunteered in a kindergarten classroom. This single experience started it all for her. Amanda’s passion continued to grow as she volunteered locally by mentoring young girls in Milwaukee and Minneapolis and internationally volunteered with teaching English to women and children in Peru. She saw firsthand the need for educational resources and the possibilities that greater access to education could have for women and children.
After Amanda’s Africa and Peru trips, her love for travel was ignited. She loved not only seeing beautiful places, but also meeting new people and being immersed in new cultures. Amanda was able to experience so much beauty in our world, not only because she traveled to many places, but because she had an ability to see the beauty in every day moments. She believed that being in the moment allowed us to capture the beauty that surrounds us.
OUR GUIDING LIGHT AS A FOUNDATION
Amanda was repeatedly challenging herself and was a dreamer. Her bucket list was held near and dear to her heart, and in her will she wrote, “I want my family to complete my bucket list for me. I want them to see the world through my eyes.” This foundation has been created so we could check off #25 on Amanda’s bucket list: Start a new charity.
