In 2009, Scott Fisher’s family and friends formed The Scott M. Fisher Foundation Fund (SMFFF). In his memory, the foundation continues his practice of helping others in need.
The SMFFF promotes programs for young adults suffering from depression in Culpeper. The foundation’s mission is to help prevent suicide in our community. The foundation, now a part of the Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board (RRCSB). supports the board's 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 SMFFF also supports specialized causes like Healthy Culpeper's After School Arts Program.
The SMFFF 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 Fund is the Good Karma Memorial Golf Tournament. The Good Karma committee consists of the following members: Ashley Carter, Andrew Carter, Christy Swift, Nick Swift, Alan Rasmussen, Emily Ryan and Robby Ryan. 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 SMFFF is under the administrative auspices of the Rappahannoc-Rapidan Community Services Board. The SMFFF is thus tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. All funds donated to the SMFFF go toward its efforts to raise awareness and help prevent suicide in our community.
