Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Crime & Law, Drunk Driving-Related, Education, Scholarships, Scholarships & Student Financial Aid, Secondary & High Schools

Mission: The mission of The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation is to educate, inspire, and motivate. We want to educate about the dangers of drunk, impaired, and distracted driving and how one decision can affect so many others than just ourselves. We want to inspire to make the right decisions to help ensure that there are no more empty seats at anyone's dinner table due to something that is 100% preventable. We want to motivate those around us to help spread Keri Anne's story and to help us change the world in her name.

Results: We have spoken to and reached thousands of high school students to share Keri's story and help them see how decisions can affect so many. We have also spoken to hundreds of law enforcement officers, thanking them for what they do, letting know that they do matter, and encouraging and challenging them to continue to go out there night after night and do it again.

Target demographics: Students, adults, law enforcement, and organization understand the decisions they make affect more people than they know byt sharing Keri Anne's story.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 10,000 students and 6 law enforcement agencies.

Geographic areas served: We are based in Orlando Florida, and travel nationwide

Programs: we hold an annual 5k to raise awareness, annual dinner banquet to bring the community closer together, toys for tots, World day of remembrance, etc. S well as working with state legislation to strengthen the DUI laws.

My family has had the pleasure of knowing the DeMott family for several years. What Bill and the family have done to educate, prevent, and advocate for impaired/distracted driving is absolutely first class. Their message has been well received by our children and they are doing great things to help prevent young children and adults from making life altering decisions that will impact them and others in their community.

I had the privilege of hearing Bill DeMott speak to 142- 5th graders during their FOCUS graduation at Partin Elementary School on November 16, 2018. He spoke to the students in a way they could all relate. His message touched so many of us not only the students, but also the adults who attended. His message to them, “The decisions we make today determine the stories told about us tomorrow.” This message will be with me forever! Thank you DeMott family for continuing to make a difference and sharing Keri Anne’s story all over the country.

The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation has not only reignited my passion for traffic related crimes but has also aided in my education to become a better police officer. This foundation has more passion for officers and their line of work than any other I have been involved in. I am committed to making the roadways safer after hearing the tragic story of this amazing family!

As a parent of 2 teenagers, I'm very concerned about my kids driving; let alone driving with drunks on the road. The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation goes out to tell everyone that every choice they make matters; not only for them, but for many families that will be affected by the poor choice of 1 individual.

Despite suffering an immense tragedy, this family stepped up and said NO MORE!
I admire their strength and courage. I personally would have crumpled.
I am honoured to know this family personally and fully support their journey, one they are taking us all on to bring an end to the normally of driving whilst under the influence.
