- Karma and its members pledge to support autism recovery and awareness charity through grant program and volunteer work –
Los Angeles, CA – August 23, 2012 – The Karma Foundation, an exclusive social membership organization that combines the benefits of executive networking and philanthropy with luxury lifestyle events, has added Generation Rescue to its growing list of charity and non-profit beneficiaries.
The Karma Foundation has already donated over $25,000 to Generation Rescue through proceeds from its annual Kandyland event. It will now become a Corporate Sponsor and participate in the charity’s grant program.
To date Karma and its members have sponsored ten families, providing their children medical assistance and services which would otherwise be unaffordable for recovery of autism spectrum disorders. Karma will continue to sponsor additional families whose children need this assistance through future event proceeds and member donations.
Marvin Epstein, Karma Foundation’s executive vice president of Business Development and Philanthropy, said: “Karma prides itself on long-term relationships with the charities it supports, our ‘philanthropy legacy’ strategy. We will work with Generation Rescue to ensure our donations are contributing in the most effective way possible. We believe our strategy will create a genuine and critical component to ensure the success of these organizations.”
Candace McDonald, executive director of Generation Rescue said: “We are grateful to the Karma Foundation and its members for making a commitment to support our grant program and provide treatment for families affected by autism. We appreciate the generous donations they have made, and also the lasting partnership we have begun to build together. Their ongoing unique support strategy establishes an exciting initiative to help more families and create further awareness and growth for Generation Rescue.”
Generation Rescue, led by president, Jenny McCarthy, is dedicated to the recovery of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders through medical treatments, support and guidance. Of the recent sponsorship and partnership, Jenny McCarthy said: “It’s so great to find a sponsor like the Karma Foundation, where its members truly care about the people served by the nonprofits they support.”
