The Diane Dawson Foundation was established in 2003, in memory of Gail Diane Dawson. Diane was born and raised in Englewood, Colorado yet called Roseville and Granite Bay, California her home since 1993. She was constantly volunteering her time at her church, local schools and community events. 

She cherished her family and friends, and her love and encouragement touched many. Her greatest joy was her two sons, Brad and Josh, and her dream was that they discover their gifts and talents, and become all that they can be. 

Her passion and love for her children, family, friends, and community were the inspiration for this foundation. It is this passion, which the foundation seeks to support in others. Through efforts of family and friends, Diane's love of life and community lives. on.
