The Ryan Seacrest Foundation is moving! Their headquarters have relocated permanently from Los Angeles to right here in Nashville.
For those unfamiliar with the Foundation, it’s a non-profit dedicated to inspiring youth through entertainment and education-focused initiatives. Until now, they’ve had their headquarters in L.A.. Today, they announced that would change! They also announced the entertainment industry advisors that helped make this possible.
Scott Borchetta (President, CEO & Founder of BMLG), Nicki Farag (Executive Vice President, Promotion, Def Jam Records) and John Ivey (President, CHR Programming Strategy at iHeartMedia) will support the Foundation’s mission. Allison Kaye (President, SB Projects), Debra O’Connell (President, General Manager, WABC-TV) and Gary Spangler (Executive Vice President, Promotion, Republic Records) will also be aiding the Foundation.
“We’re honored to have assembled a talented group of industry executives, who have been generously supporting our Foundation for years, to join us officially as advisors to help us advance our efforts and elevate our network of Seacrest Studios,” Meredith Seacrest (Ryan Seacrest Foundation Executive Director/COO) said. “We’re also excited to call Nashville our new home, which isn’t far from our Seacrest Studio at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.”
The advisors will help the foundation expand its impact and expand its programming in Seacrest Studios. These studios are in children’s hospitals across the country. They’ll also work with the Seacrest family and the Foundation to help generate awareness of their mission, bring talent to visit and drive development and fundraising opportunities.
Since its creation, RSF has arranged for hundreds of celebrities to visit patients at Seacrest Studios across the country. Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry are just a few of the artists who have made a difference through this organization. Currently, Sabrina Carpenter, Charlie Puth, Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas are serving as the Foundation’s celebrity ambassadors.
