Mason Forever Foundation scholarship opportunities | Communities

The Mason Forever Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes youth sports and students pursuing a degree in the medical/ health/fitness fields. The foundation was established in 2020 in honor of Mason Sawyer Monteleone, a junior on the Dean’s List at Florida State University.

Mason was majoring in Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences when he tragically died in a car accident on Aug. 28, 2020. Mason’s dream was to become an orthopedic surgeon or a physician assistant. Sports, physical health, mental health, and education were core to his being his. I have played youth football for the Lewiston Porter Youth Football Club and travel soccer for the Niagara Pioneer Soccer Club. Mason also participated in soccer, basketball, wrestling, and track while in middle school at Lewiston-Porter.

He attended Canisius High School where he participated in soccer, rugby, and wrestling. He was also a member of the NY State Catholic Champion Canisius High School football team. Mason enjoyed snowboarding, skiing, and jet skiing. He had many hours of community service at the Niagara Falls Boys and Girls Club, UBMD Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, Buffalo General Hospital and at Niagara Pioneer. The Mason Forever Foundation was established to support other young people who share the same passions as Mason.
