Get to Know the Haley Cremer Foundation 

Our Mission

The Haley Cremer Foundation was founded in 2015 in loving memory of an outgoing,enthusiastic, and compassionate individual.

Haley was tragically taken from us on Father’s Day, June 15, 2014.

At the time of her death, Haley was preparing to enter her junior year at Simmons College to continue her studies toward a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She is remembered as someone who cared deeply for others, always providing encouragement to those around her. We honor Haley’s legacy through our recognition and support of individuals and organizations exhibiting four core values:
Demonstrating Compassion for others; Instilling Perseverance in the face of hardship;
Fostering Insight and recovery; Championing Renewal of spirit.

The Dragonfly as the Foundation’s Symbol In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adapt-ability and self-realization. In Native American legends, it is a symbol of transcendence and renewal following hardship. We believe the Dragonfly is evocative of Haley’s spirit and use it throughout our materials and events to reflect these powerful symbols.
