In December 2012 Jon Frank launched “Love Is All,” a non-profit foundation dedicated to supporting community groups in need of immediate cash assistance. Frank started “Love Is All” to honor his father, H. Stephen Frank, and to reflect his personal dedication to the Buddhist principles of love and compassion.
“DC Group has been involved in every natural disaster from Katrina to Sandy,” Frank said, “I’ve seen first-hand the devastation that people live through, and want to do more than just restore power. I want to help people rebuild hope and a sense of community.”
In the month since its inception on December 12, 2012 Love Is All has granted more than $20,000 in relief to disaster victims and others. Beneficiaries have been streamlined, direct-service organizations including The Robin Hood Foundation, the Twin Cities’ Union Gospel Mission, the ASPCA and the North Shore Animal League.
Frank is reflective about his motivations for founding Love Is All. “DC Group was founded in a spirit of love — the love between me and my father — and at the end of the day, that truly is what matters most,” he stated. The elder Mr. Frank, passed away a decade ago, but is still very much present in all that Jon does. “My father and I didn’t always get along, but we found our way back to each other and learned together that love is what matters. This foundation is a legacy to that hard-learned lesson.”
