The Stacey Toran Foundation was created in 1998 to honor the memory and legacy of Toran, a former football standout for Broad Ripple High School in Indianapolis, Notre Dame and the Oakland Raiders.
The Foundation provides scholarships for financially-challenged Indianapolis Public School students to pursue degrees in higher education, sponsors instructional/leadership camps for student-athletes, creates tutorial sessions for student-athletes and provides mentoring and leadership for selected youth.
