Tyler Perry Gifts NAACP with $1 Million
Continuing on his mission to 'give back', millionaire moviemaker, Tyler Perry has pledged $1 million to be distributed over four years to the NAACP. "I feel so honored and blessed to be in a position where I can give," he told PEOPLE.
"Had it not been for the perseverance and vision of the thousands who came before me in the 100 years of this legendary organization, I would not be in the position I am in today." Perry's gift will go towards supporting the NAACP's programs on economic equality education, health care and criminal justice.
Earlier this month, Perry donated $150,000 to the both the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless for food and operating expenses.
