In 2009, Scott Fisher’s family and friends formed The Scott M. Fisher Foundation (SMFF). In his memory, the Foundation continues his practice of helping others in need.
The SMFF promotes programs for young adults suffering from depression in Culpeper. The Foundation’s mission is to help prevent suicide in our community. The Foundation supports organizations like Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board (RRCSB) in their efforts to raise awareness of the warning signs of depression and suicide, share valuable information on how and where to seek help, and help provide emergency services. The SMFF also supports specialized causes like Healthy Culpeper's After School Arts Program and Bipolar Aware.
The SMFF board members are Brian Fisher, Steve Fisher, Gail Picking, and Linda Werner. The Foundation relies on help from many dedicated volunteers including its Special Advisors John Fisher, Ken Picking, and Alan Rasmussen.
The main annual fundraiser for the Scott M. Fisher Foundation is the Good Karma Memorial Golf Tournament. The Good Karma committee consists of the following members: Rachel Davis, Dustyn Deal, Eric Kidd, Justin McFarland, Eric Mills, Brandon Payne, Katherine Ryan, Christy Stewart, Nick Swift, and Judy West. Of course, the tournament would not be able to run without the assistance of the volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy to making this such a successful event. Please join us for our Good Karma Memorial Golf Tournament.
The SMFF is under the administrative auspices of the Culpeper Foundation, which is a community trust. As part of the Culpeper Foundation, the SMFF is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. All funds donated to the SMFF go toward its efforts to raise awareness and help prevent suicide in our community.
