The Stephanie Brown Cadet Memorial Foundation was co-founded by her surviving spouse, Ron, and her sister, Deborah, along with friends and family members in the wake of her untimely passing in July of 2005. Stephanie was a devoted mother of two, an accomplished software sales executive and a committed volunteer. She often spoke of being her “brother’s keeper” and to that end, she believed that young people need to participate in making their communities a better place to live. Stephanie had plans to establish funds and community services to enhance and enrich the lives of others and to help ensure a more fair and equitable society. The SBC Foundation, created in Stephanie’s memory, seeks to realize her intentions and advance her legacy. The SBC Foundation is a California 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that has chosen to partner with the community foundation to administer this scholarship program.
