The Dylan Meier - Get Busy Living Foundation (GBL) was established in 2011 to provide support for individuals and groups that embody the values that Dylan pursued; adventure, fitness, curiosity, generosity, and a daily zest for life experiences. The GBL Foundation is determined to breakdown the boundaries that keep people from living life to the fullest, whether those boundaries be social, economical or imaginary. The GBL Foundation will use donations to promote these values in the following ways; student academic/athletic scholarships, sport camp sponsorships, student travel abroad scholarships, community service needs and other activities that motivate, inspire leadership and build character. The GBL Foundation strongly believes that each individual must wholeheartedly contribute to their own experience; and will encourage programs that require individual matching funds. Gifts to the fund are in memory of our friend, brother, and son Dylan Meier and will be administered through the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas (CFSEK) and IRS 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable organization.
