My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for TYLER PERRY FOUNDATION INC, Atlanta, GA, USA
December 8, 2018
I am a Single mom who has raised two amazing young African American young men age 23 and 25. They are the first in our family to attend college. I have always taught them to volunteer and give to others by demonstrating it ourselves.
Marquis started a Windsor High School store selling school mementos, snacks and African American books. He received minimum scholarships and grants. He went on to attend Temple University and graduated from Temple University. His full name is Marquis Donovan Fisher. It took him 2 years to find a job in his field of Marketing/advertising, which included dropping Marquis on his resume and moving to Atlanta with no family or friends. He has a loan for $30K+.
My other son Malcolm Chaz Fisher attended the Art Institute in Philadelphia because New York was too expensive. Malcolm started a T-shirt screening business in high school and sold them at the school store that his brother starter. He began to see his designs on TV therefore stopped when he went to the Art Institute. He graduated and is now working at Apple store but finds it difficult to advance within that corporation and works a lot of hours which leave him little time to start his business due to paying back his loans. He has $60K+.
I also have $80K+ of parent plus loans outstanding for them both. I am trying to keep up and avoid my wages from being garnished. If you or your organization can help any one of us so we can help one another, it would ease the financial challenges and make an amazing blessing into our lives.

It hurts my heart that I thought I was doing good for us by sending these boys to college but it is turning out to be a nightmare. If your generosity can help take this financial strain for many years to come off of our shoulders, we would forever pay it forward to many.
