In recognition of the sacrifices that our first responders have made on our behalf and that they continue to make every day, “The Memorial Villages First Responder Relief Fund” was established. The mission of the fund is to provide relief to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who are themselves the victims of disasters or suffer other emergency hardships. Initially, the fund accepted donations from Memorial Villages’ residents, businesses, and others to provide financial assistance through cash grants to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who suffered financial hardships as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The fund now remains in place to provide financial assistance to our first responders who face future emergency hardships as a result of natural disasters or emergencies.

We ask that you please consider making a donation to this fund.

The following are the members of the Board of Directors of this fund:

  • Will Franklin (wf@lrpartners.com) – Bunker Hill Village
  • Edward Rhyne (edward.rhyne@bakerbotts.com) - Hunters Creek Village
  • Jeremy Sanders (jsanders@css-firm.com) - Hedwig Village
  • Adnan Amjad (aamjad@deloitte.com) – Piney Point Village

The Memorial Villages First Responder Relief Fund is administered, and grants must be approved, by the Board. If you have questions regarding donations, the use of donations, or the administration of the fund, please feel free to contact any of the Board members listed above.

With the exception of set up and banking fees that may be charged for donations by credit card, relatively small filing fees paid to the State of Texas for the formation of the fund, and any out-of-pocket charges that may be incurred in connection with preparing and filing the fund’s tax returns and annual required state filings, we expect 100% of donations to go to grant recipients.

We certainly appreciate the generous support of Baker Botts L.L.P., who has provided legal services on a pro bono basis in connection with the formation of the fund and to Belt Harris Pechacek LLLP who continues to provide audit and tax services to the Corporation.

The fund has been formed as a Texas non-profit corporation and we are in the process of applying with the IRS for the fund to be classified as a tax-exempt charitable organization (501(c)(3)) so that your donations will be tax deductible, which classification process will take a few months to complete. Once the fund receives its tax-exempt classification, we will notify all contributors, and the deductibility of your contributions will not be adversely affected by making your donations before the fund receives its tax-exempt classification from the IRS.
