"Show Potential, Integrity, Responsibility, and Inspire Thousands!"
Robert’s family and friends formed the Robert Yin SPIRIT Foundation Inc as a non-profit organization, to support educational and charitable work. Robert was a positive spirit, so the Foundation adopted the word “SPIRIT” in its name. Our mission is to promote initiatives that “Show Potential, Integrity, Responsibility, and Inspire Thousands.”
What is Foundation's purpose?
The Foundation supports educational and charitable projects as a means to grow SPIRIT amongst our youth and community. We host concerts, races, and dances that are SPIRIT-lifting and fund-raising activities. We ask for donations, which are also tax-deductible contributions, from people and corporations. Then we give gifts or grants back to schools and the community. We focus on the subjects of scholarship, music, performing arts, athletics, sports safety, and organ donation.
What is the Foundation doing in the present and future?
Here are some examples:
The Robert Yin SPIRIT Foundation Inc is incorporated in Maryland as a non-profit organization. Corporate bylaws are written, and the Foundation's tax exempt status as a Section 501(c)(3) with the IRS is pending approval.
How are you a part of SPIRIT?
Many of the people who embrace the idea of SPIRIT, who help the Foundation, knew Robert personally. We remember Robert's example of contagious enthusiasm, school spirit, and selfless friendships. We feel committed to continue encouraging positive values, fellowship, and civic behavior. You do not need to have known Robert while he was alive to be a part of SPIRIT initiatives or the Foundation. Let SPIRIT be a reminder of how you are connected with your friends, school, and community. We encourage you to “Show Potential, Integrity, Responsibility, and Inspire Thousands.”
