The Mighty Quinn Foundation honors Quinn Rooney's passion for learning and love of theater by providing scholarships, training, artistic programming and creative opportunities within its community. Our goal is to provide young artists with the tools to learn, grow, create, and perform.
A lifelong Stratford resident, Quinn grew up next door to the grounds of the former American Shakespeare Festival Theater and always hoped to see it revitalized. He passed away in June 2012 from a rare form of brain cancer at age 19, having led life to the fullest — traveling around the world, performing in numerous theatrical productions, graduating from high school and attending Loyola University of Chicago.
The Mighty Quinn Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity, is dedicated to the educational and theatrical experiences of young men and women. To honor Quinn's passion for learning and love of theater, we provide scholarships and theater study programs for high school and college students, and also provide artistic and creative opportunities for young artists to grow, learn and perform.
