With the passing of his son, Truett Foster McKeehan, TobyMac has created a foundation to honor both his son’s memory and his love of music.
According to the website, The Truett Foster Foundation has the goal of helping “vulnerable youth to college, that they may realize their God-given potential to change the lives of others” through The Global Orphan Project.
“Truett Foster McKeehan had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match”, TobyMac states in the Foundation description. “Since the age of 12, he knew he wanted to make music. Dreams are so important to kids growing-up. Too many children do not have the financial ability to pursue their dreams. We want to use this fund to help kids do just that: to get an education – to pursue music – to get the chance to chase their dreams. Truett would love that."
One hundred percent of public donations will be used to fund scholarships in partnership with the Global Orphan Project, which will underwrite all general and administrative expenses in honor of the aspiring musician.
