Even after his death, Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, will continue to use his hard earned money very useful. Through his foundation, the billionaire promised to donate millions of dollars to the homeless in Seattle.
Serve a need
Paul died of lymphoma on October 15, 2018, at the age of 65. Prior to his death, however, the philanthropist planned to donate $ 30 million to set up 94 homeless and low-income families in Seattle.
The donation falls under Paul's own organization, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. It includes planning and construction through a facility to accommodate these families, which is operated by the local charity Mercy Housing Northwest. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray also announced that the city would provide another $ 5 million to the project.
Make a plan
An eight-storey complex is being planned. Half of the units in the building will be for homeless families, the other for low-income families of three. Mercy Housing President Bill Rumpf also said the facility will provide resources and services to residents, including childcare and education programs.
The plans for this new building come at a much needed time. Families of the working class are struggling with the cost of living, which undoubtedly contributes to homelessness in the city. This complex is a great resource and sanctuary for those who need it most.
A heart for people
This project is one of many funded by the Paul & # 39; s Foundation. He used to be consistent money to help others, even to develop programs that focus on education, science and the arts. Although he has left, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation continues to work tirelessly to help the needy, as Paul would have wished.
This Seattle complex is part of Paul's heritage. Although the completion of the building will take several years, after commissioning the building, it will not only have a positive impact on the residents, but also on others who may need the resources provided by the facilities. And all thanks to Paul Generosity and selflessness, Rest in peace.
