Courtney's Pumpkin Patch is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 public benefit corporation formed in honor of Courtney Jade Davis who, at the age of 16, died from a rare pediatric bone cancer. Our Mission is directed by the attributes Courtney possessed: tenacity, perseverance, courage, volunteerism in her community and assisting animals in need.
To further that mission, Courtney's Pumpkin Patch, shall award scholarships each year to students at Cloverdale High School in Cloverdale, California who have exemplified those character traits. In addition, we shall grant assistance to cancer patients in the local community who are undergoing financial hardship while combating their illness.
In 2003 & 2004, Courtney Jade Davis, a Jr. high school student at Cloverdale High School (CHS), organized the first Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. The proceeds benefitted the Cloverdale Family Service and her school. The following year, she was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer and on January 5th, 2008, succumbed to the disease. Courtney's fight and amazing attitude were an inspiration to the community and her death left a hole in the heart of this small town. In 2008, CHS, set up the Courtney Jade Davis Memorial Scholarship in her memory. As a fundraising effort for the scholarship, her friends and family decided to carry on her Pumpkin Patch in her name. In 2015, Courtney's Pumpkin Patch became a 501(c) (3) non-profit
