We have finally completed the setup of the Richie Pryor Foundation. Setting up this foundation has been an inspirational and healing journey for our family. We are so proud to be helping people all over the country in Richie’s name. Through this foundation we will keep Richie’s memory alive and bring comfort to those who need it.
I just finished the donation button that will allow all of our generous followers to donate using a credit card. You may also send a check to our Mailing address. Donating will make you feel happier and us as well. Please read the following blog post to see how. Want to be Happier, Give More. Give Better.
We have submitted our application to the state for our 501c3, which will provide us with our non-profit status. Therefore, until we receive our approval we will not be able to give out tax-deductible receipts. However, once we obtain our 501c3 we will send out receipts to all the angels that have donated.
Now for the real work. Barbara, Matthew and I will be recruiting an army of angels to help us with this foundation. We will call it our board of saints. Our board will work on fundraising aspects of Richie’s foundation, develop a marketing campaign, create fund raising opportunities, develop an annual gala for everyone to gather and share memories of Richie and DONATE LOTS OF MONEY. The board positions will not be paid. Hey, you get to spend time with Barbara and I. That in itself is priceless.
If anyone is interested in joining our board of saints please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (still have to get foundation e-mail setup). We are looking for individuals that want to help fundraising, marketing, volunteering, etc. I hope to have the board recruited by mid October. I am currently in the middle of writing my book, so time has become a very precious commodity. Plus I have the Gucci boys that distract me at times. Which is a very welcome distraction. Please share this post so we can make our mission come true. Stay tuned for some upcoming blog posts about the people we are helping and our fundraising activities.
God bless you all
Richie, Barbara, Matthew, Toby, Herbie and Gizzie Pryor.
