The Franki Moscato Foundation was created to fight the growing epidemic of teen suicide. In 2017, over 17% of high school students considered suicide, and 7.4% attempted it. And there are a plethora of “attempts” that families do not disclose.
— Knowing the signs.
— Making it difficult for someone to die by self-harm.
— Fostering access to mental health resources.
Four out of five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs. Suicides are preventable and there are measures that can be taken at different levels to prevent suicide and suicide attempts. This all requires education, tools, and influence. My foundation grants money to schools and organizations to afford to bring in the appropriate professionals to put into place a sustainable awareness and prevention program that includes students, parents, faculty, and broader communities.
My foundation is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3), which means that every penny donated is tax-deductible. And we’ll send you a personal “Donor Acknowledgement” mailing that you’ll use to describe your write-off when filing your taxes.
Please consider a small donation–every penny helps.
God bless you always,
