The Garrett Janos Foundation

$2,955 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 53 months

Garrett Janos was one of the most amazing, talented people that has graced this world. Earlier this week he decided to leave us with a void in our heart.

In his time here Garrett touched the lives of so many people. He always had an open ear and the willingness to listen.

In his memory a group of people are setting up The Garrett Janos Foundation to support others struggling with mental illness. The 501c3 paperwork is being filed with the secretary of state and we have a very optimistic outlook on recieving our non profit status.

The mission of The GJF will be to invest in and donate to charities we feel Garrett would have supported, especially those that help people also stuggling with mental illness.  We are looking to raise money to get the Foundation on its feet and get moving on making beneficial relationships with charities. Our hope is that this will make Garrett live on forever and do what he was great at, helping people.

If you would like to get involved with the foundation, please feel free to contact us at

Thank you to everyone for the support and please let us know who you are so we can let everyone know about your help!

Though the past few days have been some of the most trying in many of our lives. A lot of people have stepped up to help. I wanted to let everyone know that the foundation is moving forward smoothly.

I have enlisted the services of some of the best people with setting up 501c3 not for profit corporations. I will be in a series of meetings for the next few weeks to ensure that no block get in our way. This process is a quite expensive one and time consuming one as well so thank you to all the donors and I ask that everyone please keep sharing this page. Every little bit helps out.

Thank you all!

Thank you for creating a foundation on behalf of Garrett. What a beautiful way to keep his memory alive and to help those who struggle with depression. My prayers are with the Janos family and those who knew and loved Garrett. May many find hope and healing through this foundation and its efforts.
