Joseph Grant Foundation

The Joseph Grant Foundation was established in 2017 by Dr. Blair-Tischer and Mr. Scott Tischer with the purpose of raising mental health awareness and providing educational scholarships for students entering the mental health field.

Mental health struggles continue to affect individuals and families every day. However, the stigma and lack of mental health services make it difficult for individuals to get the help they need. The Joseph Grant foundation was established in honor of Joseph Grant Sudduth to provide outreach and awareness for mental health.

On January 10th 2017, Joseph Grant Sudduth lost his battle with depression. He was a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, and a beautiful soul to all. He touched many lives of those who were fortunate enough to know him and he served his country with great honor in the United States Army. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him and loved him.

Chances are that we ourselves or someone we know or love has struggled with depression, anxiety, or mental health. We may have a loved one struggling right now, or may have lost a loved one to their battle. This page was created so that these individuals may be honored and remembered, so that we may provide awareness, and so that we may end the stigma of mental health.

One story at a time, one person at a time, we can make a difference. Please feel free to share your story on this page and make a donation on behalf of those we love. Thank you.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get's not." - Dr. Seuss

Every dollar of your donation will go towards outreach for mental health awareness and educational scholarships in the twin town area.

The Joseph Grant Foundation is a 501c3. Please feel free to contact us regarding donations, scholarship information, or 501c3 tax donation forms. Thank you.


A Mother's Heart

Joe was/is my son, my first born. I will never forget him. His smile was amazing, his hugs so warm and loving. I miss him terribly and want nothing more than to have him back. He was the light of my life, and getting on without him is very rough. Every day is a struggle, but I do it for him. Joe, I love you more than will ever know. Miss you so much!

"In Loving Memory of my Stepson"

Joseph is my step-son and I loved him more than he ever could have known. He brought me so much love, laughter, joy & pride! I miss him every second of every day. I am so grateful for my short time with him in my life. Thank you for starting this foundation and I hope it brings peace to those in need!

Driftwood Lounge

Thank you for the ability to donate for such a beautiful cause. Often times we forget how important each minute in our life is … as people we need to spend more on experiences, and less on material items. Last year our grandson found out on his 13th birthday he had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After seven chemo treatments, in which we promised him we would be there for each one, we saw the hurt, love and fight that kid and his parents and sister have, and surrounded by their village. He is now in remission, but cannot be claimed as cancer free for five years of testing. I would like to make a donation of $250 in the name of Driftwood Lounge.
