Nic Pagano LGBTQIA+ Fund

Help LGBTQIA+ individuals access quality, affirming substance use disorder treatment.

The Nic Pagano Scholarship Fund helps LGBTQIA+ individuals access quality, affirming substance use disorder treatment.

Nic Pagano was a passionate member of the LGBTQIA+ community, a voice for justice in the Transgender community and talented stage and film actor. He died tragically of an overdose in June 2021.

Remembered with love as a compassionate member of his sober living home, Nic went out of his way to welcome new clients and help them adjust to their new living environment. While he was always deeply passionate about movies and music and was already a working actor, he began to realize his interest in pursuing a career in therapeutic healing.

Since partnering with Caron Treatment Centers, a center of excellence in addiction treatment, we’ve been able to raise more than $150,000 in scholarship funding for this community.
