Thrive In Joy In Joy

The Thrive in Joy Nick Fagnano Foundation honors the life of Nick Fagnano by encouraging and rewarding character through education and recreation.

Nick Fagnano (November 23, 1993- July 27, 2014),  was a remarkable young man who was known for his strong character, kindness, joy, faith and love of life. On a sunny Sunday afternoon at Venice Beach, Nick left his friends sitting on the sand to go down to the ocean and rinse off.  Within moments of entering the ocean, a freak lightning strike occurred shooting bolts into the water instantly killing Nick.  No one on the beach including the lifeguards could have foreseen this 1 in 10 million occurrance.   Nick's parents, Mary and Jay, in seeking a way to insure that Nick's goodness continues to radiate upon this earth, have established the Foundation to:

 1) Support several projects in the Dominican Republic that provide vulnerable children in this country with better opportunities for their future 

2) Provide a scholarship to an incoming transfer student (just as Nick would have been) to USC's Price School of Public Policy
