We began The JJ Nicastro Foundation after JJ passed away tragically on July 12, 2007 at the young age of 12. We wanted to keep JJ’s name alive in a way that would have a positive impact on other children’s lives.
We promote the spirit of JJ who was loving, caring, charismatic, sensitive and competitive.
Our goal is to make a positive influence on young students involved primarily in youth sports and school activities. This will be accomplished by financial support, as well as, a mentoring program. We will hold many events throughout the year which can be viewed on the Events Page.
Here’s how it works
STUDENT JOINS SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
Students should participate in as many school activities as they’d like
PARENTS HAVE TO PAY
Student’s parents have to pay the school fees
FINANCES ARE TIGHT
These school fees add up to $$$$
JJ FOUNDATION HELPS OUT
We step in and pay the user fees for the student throughout their high school career
It’s something so simple but makes a world of difference to a family in need of financial assistance
