MARTIN W RICHARD CHARITABLE FOUNDATION INC's Photo

THE STORY:

The Martin Richard Foundation will honor Martin's message of "No more hurting people - peace" by investing in education, athletics and community.


The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation Inc., is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed at the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013.

In the days after the bombing, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read “No more hurting people – Peace” went global and made many see Martin as a symbol of peace. Martin Richard’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence. To Martin, peace meant things like togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, the prevention of bullying and simple acts of kindness.
Martin was an 8-year-old boy who loved learning, sports and the world around him. He participated in the BAA Children’s Relay on Marathon weekend for three consecutive years. He was a school peacemaker and recognized at a young age that while we are all different, we are all the same. The way Martin saw the world anything was possible.

Bill and Denise Richard determined it was fitting that the foundation should honor Martin’s message of peace by investing in education, athletics and community. Details of which will be made available soon on this website.
The Foundation was formed on January 2, 2014, to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the prescribed limits of 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service.
