Celebrating our ELEVENTH year of service – 2024!

I am humbled and proud that The Frank Ridge Memorial Foundation, Inc. (a 501(c)3 non-profit) has survived for eleven years.  When first conceived in 2013 to honor the memory of my father, I never imagined we would accomplish so much for so long. I am tremendously grateful to the hundreds of mental health professionals who have elected to earn literally thousands of continuing education contact hours year after year by taking our seminars, and to the hundreds of supporters who have kept us alive with their generous donations and grants. 

As our eleventh year unfolds, we promise to continue to create and facilitate topical new seminars; find inspiring & trailblazing movies as the springboard for lively conversation; and continue to bring our one-woman show RIPTIDE to communities across America. As a special offer to our grantors and supporters, we welcome you to participate in any Zoom seminar of your choosing to see how your charitable donations are spent. Please check out our REGISTRATION FOR EVENTS & SEMINARS page to see what’s on the docket.  

The short doc BREATHE – directed by Zac Norrington – was presented at the prestigious ReelAbilities 2023 Film Festival and has been a semi-finalist at several other film festivals. As soon as it’s streamable for all, we’ll let you know!
