POPULAR MUSICIAN’S DEATH SPURS LAUNCH OF SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION

New Organization Seeks To Begin “Changing Lives, One Child at a Time”

 

(June 2013 – Hamilton, NJ) God’s Morning Foundation (GMF) is a nonprofit organization established on April 27, 2013 in memory of Darrell “Kleph Dollaz” Durant, a well-known producer/songwriter, most notably from the 90s hip-hop duo “Ill Biskits”. While he was mostly celebrated for his musical achievements, outside of the limelight he served as a dedicated youth counselor. His passion for supporting at-risk youth and desire to transform the way the music industry promotes artists and the impact of those images on children inspired Kleph’s family to continue his legacy after his death on August 28, 2012.

 

God’s Morning Foundation’s mission is to support at-risk youth who wish to pursue a career in the arts through college scholarships and summer camp financial assistance offerings. The organization seeks to help and encourage adolescents that are working to make positive impacts in their communities, even when surrounded by opportunities that could easily influence them to do otherwise. Founder and CEO Trenna Grice, Durant’s sister, states “God’s Morning Foundation is dedicated exclusively to children’s well-being and education, regardless of the financial status of their parents.”

 

The foundation’s scholarships are supported by donations. As the organization gains momentum, they also plan to host drives that will focus on raising funds to help offset summer camp costs for children of families in need. Inquiries about these and other upcoming events can be sent to Trenna@godsmorningfoundation.org.
