"The Josephine Foundation is an organization, founded in 2002 and incorporated in 2004, to honor and remember Josephine Koslosky, a woman who believed that by using arts and sports programs, young people and adults can reach for their dreams regardless of their background and financial status. Through our annual events and works, The Josephine Foundation raises money and distributes 100% of these funds to help give individuals and approved programs an opportunity to achieve their goals in life. Through the disciplines of properly run music, arts and sports programs, young people and adults can reach for their dreams regardless of race, color, creed, nationality, gender, age or financial status. The Foundation will distribute the money raised by awarding grants at its Annual Gala. In addition, we will use special performing arts projects to raise funds and support 501(c)(3) charities providing support for medical, quality of life and disaster relief throughout the world."
