About the Foundation
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 in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013.
Martin was an 8-year-old boy who loved learning, sports and the world around him. 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.
Our mission is simple:
The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation honors Martin's message of
"No more hurting people. Peace" by investing in education, athletics and community.
We have tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Our Tax ID number is 35-2491896.
For those already registered to run in the 2014 New York City Marathon who would like to join our team, we are accepting applications on a rolling basis from registered runners wishing to raise funds for the foundation that will honor Martin’s message of Peace.
