Makenna Schwab: Outstanding Young Philanthropist

Makenna was born with an incredibly rare skeletal disorder known as Larsen’s Syndrome. This pervasive connective tissue disorder causes virtually every joint in her body to be dislocated and causes instability in her spine. Makenna’s condition makes it difficult or impossible at times to walk or even breathe. Makenna Schwab, this year’s National Philanthropy Day Outstanding Young Philanthropist, strives to live without limits and inspires others to o the same.

Makenna has had more surgeries than birthdays in her 15 years. But that hasn’t slowed her down. Over the past seven years, Makenna has raised over $1 million through her nonprofit, Makspire Foundation, for organizations like Seattle Children’s Hospital and Camp Korey. She shares her story each year with thousands of people to inspire kids with serious medical conditions.

When she’s not traveling, volunteering or fundraising, she is a sophomore at Eastmont High School in East Wenatchee, WA. Last year she was named “Freshman Girl of the Year” at her high school in honor of her academic achievements and public service.
