The Ray T. Foundation
The Ray T. Beacon of Light AMPS Foundation is a nonprofit organization
founded in memory of Raven T. Jeffress.
Raven had dreams of becoming a Psychologist and contributing to mental health research to improve humans suffering from mental health disorders. She was also a Co-Founder of A.M.P.S., where she worked with her peers to create an organization to do amazing community work. Raven ultimately aspired to create a community and worship wellness center, and ultimately change the world.
Our goal for this Foundation is to continue Raven's community work, and also provide an annual scholarship for a student attending
Georgia State University, majoring in the Mental, Physical, or Spiritual Health field.
Each year this Foundation plans to host a community showcase and competition for spoken word, musicians, and young aspiring artists.
Judges will select a cash prize winner in efforts to continuously support young thriving artistic careers.
"When I first met Raven she hugged me like she had known me for a lifetime. At first I thought, “I think she think I’m somebody else,” but after watching her organize and lead A.M.P.S. events and discuss what true wellness is, I now know that that was just the kind of person she was.
Outgoing, motivating, welcoming, and positive."
