The late Disney star was acclaimed for his charitable efforts throughout his short life.

The Thirst Project honored Boyce with the Pioneering Spirit Award at the 9th Annual Thirst Gala last April for raising over $30,000 for the Thirst Project and helping to build two new wells in Swaziland.

Boyce reflected on giving back in what would be his final interview, telling Haute Living, "Many people have the heart to give back, but a lot don’t know how to. I try to be the bridge for those people – whether that means getting them involved in one of my campaigns or inspiring them by showing them a blueprint of how to get others engaged."

He added, "Every time I talk to someone who shares that similar passion, we talk about how there aren’t many feelings more euphoric. Changing someone else’s life positively changes yours for the better as well."

This weekend it was revealed that Boyce's "Grown Ups" and "Grown Ups 2" co-star Adam Sandler helped to raise $15,000 for the Thirst Project in Boyce's memory.

Boyce died earlier this month at just 20 years old after suffering a seizure in his sleep.

His family later confirmed that "The Descendants" star had epilepsy.
