Maddox was an exceptional boy who touched the hearts of many people during his lifetime.  Tragically, he passed away on October 17, 2018 at the age of eight years old.  The Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore Foundation acts in his memory to provide programs that serve the local community through the inspiration of Maddox’s life.  His legacy is one of love for family, friends, school, sports, and neighbors.  The question of “What would Maddox do?” was foundational in establishing our values and is the driving force of our actions.  Since 2019, the Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore Foundation has proudly provided nearly $32,000 in assistance to beneficiaries in the communities of Antioch, Lake Villa, Lindenhurst, Grayslake, Fox Lake, and Round Lake, Illinois.  It is our goal to ensure that countless more children and families benefit from these programs, are inspired by Maddox’s life, and continue his legacy of making the world a better place.  Our hope is that the growth, success, positive actions, and influence we provide inspires youth to generate a compounding effect on society; this is the Butterfly Effect of Maddox J. LoPriore.
