Project Compassion was founded in 2003 by Kaziah Hancock, a professional Utah artist and goat rancher. She was moved to create a portrait of a fallen Utah soldier for his family, after hearing his story on local radio, as a personal gift of appreciation for their sacrifice. Kaziah was encouraged by friends to continue to create these offerings for the families of other military casualties, and resolved to do so for as long as her time and financial resources would permit. She created 23 additional portraits for other Americans before she incorporated Project Compassion Soldier Fund, Inc. as a certified nonprofit organization in September, 2004. A major benefactor stepped up to cover the cost of artist supplies shortly thereafter, enabling the natural next steps of building Project Compassion to where it is today.
