What We Do


Remembering Alison

Alison was on a stage, in a dance studio, or in front of a camera for most of her twenty-four years of life. As a reporter, her favorite stories were about the arts, and she loved stories that inspired young people to visit a museum, pick up an instrument or a paint brush, step onto a stage, or put on ballet shoes. She had a passion for life that carried into everything she did, and the For Alison Foundation honors her with action by giving young people the opportunity to find their passion in the arts. Visit the News section of the website for photos and stories!
