Our Story

This is our why...

In June of 2022, Zachary Thomas Carter lost his battle with mental illness. Zachary was a devoted advocate of mental health and supporter of people getting the help they need. We started the ZTC Foundation to honor his legacy and fight for the mental health issues that he was such a proponent of.

Zach was an extremely creative and loving individual. Those closest to him knew he would always be a rock they could lean on. When he wasn’t spending time with his friends, he was using his brilliant ability to see the light in places most others would overlook. As an avid photographer, he was able to capture the world around him and showcase its true beauty.

Inspired by Zach, it is through this powerful lens that we at ZTC Foundation wish to provide support to all individuals who are struggling with mental illness.
