GMLP 20/21 Restoring Hope
Continuing George's Legacy of Charity
The following collection of items available for purchase were originally created for sale while in Goring for George’s birthday celebration this year. The sale of these items represent GMLP’s annual fundraiser.
All are donated by the trustees and their sale results in 100% donation to 2020’s selected charities listed above. But instead of waiting for 2021, we decided to give his Lovelies an opportunity to purchase from our web page and make donations in honor of George.
Sharing Your Charity...
As a supporter of the GMLP shop, you should know that the remaining proceeds from sales are donated to one of the featured charities of hope.
We ensure that we obtain the best prices for creating items to minimize costs to you the customer; but we also always ensure that at least a minimum of 10% is donated, an industry standard. We have generally exceeded 10% consistently.
The George Michael Legacy Project, Inc., (GMLP), is a legally filed 501(c)3 nonprofit incorporation in the United States. GMLP is used solely as nonprofit incorporation for donations under an umbrella of causes George supported throughout his life. It is a nonprofit. It has no affiliation with George’s family or estate. The work available for purchase on the website includes Artist Inspired items, not a primary source for raising donations but is available to satisfy the tremendous demand for collectors. Our work is used to inspire philanthropy on the part of his fans.
The Nonprofit will feature an Artist Showcase containing original pieces. We also conduct live raffles. We are not a manufacturer and therefore must use a third party to create the items for use. All proceeds from sales in excess of production costs are donated in full to designated charities. Proceeds from auction pieces and donated work will result in 100% funds for donation. Separate projects and tributes are also on the website. 100% of these funds are directly deposited with the charities in honor of George.
GMLP, Inc. claims no copyright to any of these images, which is retained by the respectful owner(s). All proceeds from sales are directly donated to the nonprofit clarity indicated.
