The Janyo Fund

The Ian A Thompson & Janyo Community Fund honors the life of Ian A. Thompson: 

To Create Healthy Spaces, for Happy Children

Ian Thompson (2003-2011) loved the natural world and he loved to read, play, learn tae kwon do and dabble with various instruments.  One of his favorite past-times was gardening and playing at the local creek. He was by virtue and in his spirit, a builder of community.  He was loved by all.   At age 7, he succumbed to an illness.   However, we continue on his behalf,  to support community and healthy, nurturing environments for children.   Through the ‘Ian A Thompson-Janyo Community Fund’ we  funded literacy projects, gardening projects and diversity programming.

We will continue to support area groups through volunteering and other means.

The Fundraising site is now closed and we thank The Community Foundation for being our Fiscal Sponsor!
