This fundraiser is to assist with the start-up costs for the Amy Michelle Prentiss Foundation - a nonprofit organization supporting domestic violence victims and families of domestic violence homicide victims.
I started The Amy Michelle Prentiss Foundation AKA The AMP Foundation in honor of my mom and best friend, Amy Michelle Prentiss, who was murdered in September 2015 by her live-in partner. My mom was a level two trauma nurse who spent her life helping others. Although she was very accomplished in her career, she always said that being a mother was her most fulfilling and favorite job. To say that her life was taken too soon is an understatement.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, on average, more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners in this country every day.
This organization will raise awareness about domestic violence/emotional abuse and provide resources for victims of domestic violence and families of victims of domestic violence homicide.
One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
We have not yet obtained 501(c)(3) status, but we will be using the funds raised here for legal and application fees in order to do so.
Thank you so much for visiting our fundraiser page and keeping Mama's memory alive. She was truly such a blessing in so many lives and I am hopeful that her story will change and save lives through this organization.
