About Our Foundation

The Live Like Benjo Foundation

We are an all volunteer 501(c) 3 and a 509 (a) 4 Public Charitable Tax Exempt Educational Institution.


The Live Like benjo Foundation exists to educate greater Vermont individuals and organizations on the perils and prevention of Shallow Water Blackout and to remember the passion filled life of Benjamin "Benjo" C. Haller.

  • Those who live like Benjo will not die like Benjo.


  • Develop sailing programs, which introduce Benjo's most-loved sport to economically challenged youth and inspire self-confidence and independence. 
  • Provide lecture series, displays and instructional materials to educate water sport enthusiasts of all ages on the prevention of Shallow Water Blackout.
