Mission

Dana Thompson was an artist, activist and advocate. Her work in music, film, theater, and public health enriched many lives. We believe that music is an integral tool in the lives of young people, especially those who are marginalized. The mission of Dana Thompson Memorial Fund of Awesome (DTMFA) is to raise scholarship funds for young people of color to participate in the music and empowerment programming of Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.
