Warning: Brittany Murphy Foundation
The foundation’s website states…
THE BRITTANY MURPHY FOUNDATION is a 501c3 Non-profit organization that was created by Brittany Murphy to fulfill her dream of making sure that any child who wants to learn the arts be it music,arts,composing,acting,dancing,or wanting to learn to play an instrument and cannot financially afford it will be able to do so through the BMF and the top professionals that will be volunteering to teach.
In fact, the foundation was established after Brittany’s death by Sharon Murphy, Simon Monjack and Roger Neal. It would seem likely, given his reported comment at 2:15 in this video (he has not challenged the report) that Roger Neal was it’s prime architect. Certainly Neal answered an email to it on the only occasion of which I know when an email was answered at all. I myself received no reply to any of the emails I sent to the foundation, but was at one stage corresponding with Neal via his personal email address. He told me that he was handling correspondence and forwarding it to Sharon as she had no email address. Shortly after that he resigned as publicist for Sharon personally and for the foundation. I advise anyone to demand evidence as to how their money will be spent when considering a donation.
