Founded by Ashley’s parents Charlene and Bob Goetz, and her four brothers Peter, Bobby, Corey and Dusty, the Ashley Goetz foundation (AGF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit organization dedicated to carrying out the legacy of Ashley Goetz through content creation and fundraising for specific causes. We are inspired by the woman Ashley became and her determination to make a difference in the world.

It seems adversity spawns growth. Battling Cystic Fibrosis has forced me to come into my own. This adversity has made me honor my integrity; I know who I am, what I am capable of, and will not compromise myself for anyone. It has equipped me with drive, courage, faith and confidence in myself.
