The Gracie Lee Haught Children’s Memorial Fund was established in 2005 by the Mogollon Health Alliance, a not-for-profit organization whose focus is health education.
The fund was created following a tragic accident in 2004, which took the life of 3 and half year old Gracie Lee Haught of Payson.
The fund works in conjunction with Mogollon Health Alliance to provide financial and emotional support to families suffering from the fallout of tragic accidents and unexpected emergencies and helps those in need during the most difficult of times.
