line image.JPG

“For Ian Foundation” is in its infancy; however, we were still able to award a $20,000 grant to Dr. Arthur Tischler’s research in 2018. With help from our legal and accounting volunteers we hope to have a detailed accounting of For Ian Foundation’s financial statements published on this website within the next few months. In the meantime, below is a general summary of our financial status and fund raising initiatives.
