Las Vegas resident and entertainer Terry Fator launches the Terry Fator Foundation, 10 years after winning season two of America’s Got Talent. The foundation (currently pending it’s 501(c)(3) status), along with its online home TerryFatorFoundation.com, gives fans a way to participate by traveling along this philanthropic journey with the entertainer. Fans can follow Terry as the site is updated with his tales of giving back, charity spotlights, and highlights from the foundation’s donations, appearances, and events. Additionally, they will be able to donate directly to the foundation to, in turn, helping others.
“I’m so grateful to have a foundation that will allow me to work with my board and make sure that our giving is doing the most good for the largest number of people and families that need help the most,” said Terry. “I have so many causes that I’m passionate about and personally connected to, and as I would share these stories with my fans, I would find a lot of them are directly tied to some of the same charities or have family members with certain struggles that are assisted by these groups – you never know who is affected.”
Since winning America’s Got Talent in 2007, Terry has been a continuous supporter of many charities ranging from military focused organizations including Airpower Foundation and Snowball Express, to the Arthritis Foundation, in which Terry has a family connection, and many more. One hundred percent of profits from Terry’s merchandise sales at The Mirage performances in Las Vegas, his out-of-state touring shows throughout the year, and even purchases made at the Terry Fator online store, benefit multiple military charities.
Benefit shows and special appearances supporting Terry Fator Foundation will be announced at a later date.
