About The Eric Domanico Foundation
Eric was a unique young man with a bright future ahead of him. He excelled at all his passions, but he needed more support than he made aware. Unfortunately, we were not able to help him in time.
Knowing Eric, however, is seeing that he has changed so many lives. His gift of music paints the world as a masterpiece that is as vivid as it is bold. His music will be his legacy that we will carry on so that his memory lives in perpetuity. In these beginning stages, we are learning as a family what it means to honor Eric. This reflection has helped us create The Eric Domanico Foundation. This organization was founded to remember Eric's life, be it his music, baking, or gift of humor and love that he brought to his friends and family. In time and with your generous help, the foundation will grow to connect resources back to youth like Eric.
The Eric Domanico Foundation envisions that young musicians and artists are given the individualized mental health care they need to cultivate their talents. More support is directed to the underlying causes of anxiety and depression as well as prevention. The identification of young folks who need extra help and the process of connecting them to resources is done early, often, and confidentially. With these supports, we as a society are better able to protect our most vulnerable — our youth.
This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is a charitable entity that endeavors to financially support artists with physical, socioemotional, and educational needs. Through grants and scholarships, The Eric Domanico Foundation supports the talents and mental wellness of young musicians and artists. As connectors and conveners, we collect and share resources with those struggling with mental health and or hopelessness ideation. We believe that through philanthropy giving an artistic purpose, those struggling find a reason to fight another day.
God Bless You ALL!
