As of August 19, 2022, the Heather Heyer Foundation is closing its doors.
Five years ago, in the wake of the incalculable loss of a beloved daughter, friend, and community member, we established the Foundation to honor Heather's commitment to building a more just community.
Today, we want to offer our deepest thanks to the countless supporters who have empowered HHF's work with generous gifts of time, money, and support. We have been so grateful for the community that has sprung up through and alongside this organization to honor Heather's memory and legacy. We are proud of all that we have accomplished together.
As we end this chapter, we are honored to transfer the remaining financial assets of HHF to the African American Heritage Center at the Jefferson School, in Charlottesville, Virginia. The AAHC will use these funds in support of a new center for advocacy that will deepen and expand the work that HHF set out to do five years ago. We are so excited to see where this road leads the Center and our local and global community.
It has been an honor to be entrusted with the many gifts that our loving and justice-driven community offered in Heather's honor. We know that her spirit and her work lives on in each of you.
