Advocating for creative communities and charities since 1975

Headquartered in Minneapolis, The Darryl Fanton Foundation is a philanthropist organization who aides domestic violence protection groups, organizations dedicated to the treatment of substance abuse, and charities who are champions for children.

The DFF began in the mid 1970s as a strictly financial-based charity, fueled by the estate of its namesake.  Over recent years DFF has blossomed to incorporate food drives, fundraisers, and support groups serving the Twin Cities.

Generously started by former Rock Star! Janine Fanton, the DFF honors her late brother Darryl who tragically lost his life in 1973. 

Janine Fanton, Founder and former Executive Director, now serves in an advisory role.
