The Jana Marie Foundation strives to empower young people, especially young women in their teens, to make positive choices, practice self-respect and maintain healthy relationships by providing opportunities for personal growth and self-expression.
Our Educational Program works with schools, families, and friends to combat depression, substance abuse, suicide, and related social challenges by building support networks and giving community members access to relevant resources and information.
Our Scholarship Program funds opportunities for young women in junior and senior high school to express themselves through artistic and creative endeavors.
The Foundation is classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity under U.S. federal tax guidelines. Established in February 2012 by Marisa Ann Brown in loving memory of her sister, Jana Marie Vicere.
