Matthew K Cancel Foundation

This Foundation has been organized by all 4 parents of Matthew Keith Cancel. 

Maria and Randy Wentworth & Amy and Keith Cancel, we are proud parents looking to transmute the energy from the loss of our son and provide it to kids that require financial support to push them to the next level. Our son loved all aspects of basketball and helping others succeed which inspired us to do this..

We plan to provide financial scholarships to support young kids/teenagers in their basketball path to greatness. We will start with basket ball and transition to anything our son guides us from up above..

On August 21st, Matt's World Gives Gratitude hosted a 3v3 Basketball Tournament to collect school supplies for the students and educators in the Worcester Public Schools. The top 3 teams that won were able to donate to a charity/nonprofit/organization/foundation of their choice. Team B4L took home 2nd place in the adult bracket and chose your foundation to donate to. Team B4L consisted of Darryus, DJ, and Sean. We appreciate all that you are doing and were blessed to partner with you!
