Max Gruver died on September 14th, 2017. He is one of seven young men to die as a direct result of fraternity hazing in 2017 alone. 

More than 200 university students have died due to hazing in the United States since 1838. 


Universities react to these dangerous and too-often deadly hazing situations with Greek life suspensions, expulsions and other punishments, but it is not enough. 

Hazing on college campuses must end. The Max Gruver Foundation exists to make sure hazing-related deaths do not continue.


Join our movement to prevent hazing!

Stop Campus Hazing Act


Educational Notification and Disclosure of Actions risking Loss of Life by the Stop Campus Hazing Act requires each institution of higher education that receives federal student aid to maintain and update biannually a website page that discloses student organization violations of the institution’s code of conduct that threaten the safety of students. The report would detail the corrective measures imposed by the school on the student organization. This would allow students and parents to make more informed decisions about which student organizations are safe to join. States such as South Carolina and Pennsylvania have already adapted similar laws, but it would be more effective for federal law to include these disclosures to cover all schools.

"God works in funny ways.  He does bad things sometimes because in the end they are good.  Something bad can happen to you but it may happen because it will make you better.
He does bad to ultimately create good."
