Matthew Perry Foundation

In the wake of his recent passing, the establishment of the Matthew Perry Foundation has been announced, serving as a beacon of support for individuals battling addiction.

“The establishment of the Matthew Perry Foundation is a fitting tribute to his dedication to assisting those afflicted with addiction. It is our mission to carry forward his legacy through this foundation, which is built on the principles and values he championed, and to profoundly impact as many lives as possible,” was the essence of the statement made public on Friday, which marked the inception of the foundation.

The foundation, which has begun its fundraising efforts, was formed to reflect the late actor’s heartfelt wish to be remembered more for aiding people in overcoming substance abuse than for his acclaimed work on television. Perry, an Emmy nominee and a star of the legendary sitcom “Friends,” frequently engaged in honest dialogue about his personal battles with addiction.

Oversight of the foundation’s operations will be conducted by the National Philanthropic Trust, although specific plans for the foundation’s initiatives have yet to be disclosed.

Perry passed away at the age of 54; he was found lifeless in his residence in Los Angeles on October 28, and the investigation into the precise cause of death is ongoing.

His fame spanned a decade on the hit NBC series “Friends,” where he shared the screen with co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.
