According to their literature, The Josephine Foundation “raises money and distributes 100% of these funds to help give individuals and approved programs an opportunity to achieve their goals in life. Through the disciplines of properly run music, arts and sports programs, young people and adults can reach for their dreams regardless of race, creed, nationality, gender, age, or financial status.” In 2017, The Josephine Foundation awarded two generous grants to Archbishop Molloy High School: a $1,000 grant in support of our theater program, and a $500 grant in support of our music program.
