Tyler Perry donates $1 Million to NAACP


Director and actor Tyler Perry has donated $1 million to the NAACP.  This is the largest donation received from an individual in the organization’s history. 

“I feel so honored and blessed to be in a position where I can give,” said Perry. “Had it not been for the perseverance and vision of the thousands who came before me in the 100 years of this legendary organization, I would not be in the position I am in today.”

The gift will be paid over the next four years and was made to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the civil rights organization.

“Tyler is a courageous pioneer in bringing positive images of African American culture and struggles to the screen. His remarkable journey from poverty and childhood abuse to become one of the world’s most successful filmmakers and entrepreneurs is an inspiration to us all,” NAACP chairman Julian Bond said.
