About the Hillary A. (Bartlett) Newsome Foundation


The Hillary A. (Bartlett) Newsome Foundation, INC was born as a result of turning sadness and grief into continuing the positive work of one very special girl to all who knew her - Hillary (Bartlett) Newsome. In her short 28 years, she touched the hearts of every child she came across in such a unique and everlasting way. Her compassion and devotion to bettering the lives of every child she worked with has inspired this foundation to carry on Hillary’s legacy. 


Our mission is to continue Hillary’s work in changing the lives of children with autism, special needs, and life threatening illnesses by offering hope, courage, and acceptance. We aim to provide long term financial assistance to children and their families that are affected by Autism, special needs, and life threatening illnesses in an effort to enhance their quality of life by inspiring friends of the foundation to help us make a difference.



We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In our first year, the HABNF aims to raise $50,000 in donations towards our efforts. This is a tall order, and we hope, together with your support, to succeed in our goal of continuing Hillary’s legacy.
