Donations to charity organizations are being solicited from members of the actor’s immediate family in order to recognize and celebrate his history of providing assistance to others.
Matthew Perry’s friends and family are sending out messages to his followers in order to ask for their assistance in continuing on his legacy of helping others. This is in commemoration of Giving Tuesday, which is a day that is dedicated to recognizing, advocating, and participating in charity activities and giving.

On November 3, the Matthew Perry Foundation was formally established. The foundation presents itself as the culmination of Matthew’s unwavering dedication to assisting those who are battling the illness of addiction.

In remembrance of Perry, his close friend and co-star on the television show Friend’s, Jenifer Aniston, posted a message on her Instagram story on Tuesday, urging her followers to contribute to the organization.

Thank you for joining me and Matty’s family in helping his foundation on #GivingTuesday. His foundation is trying to assist others who are struggling with addiction, and I would be grateful if you could join us. “He would have been grateful for the love.”

The family of Perry issued a statement to ET on Monday, in which they expressed their intention to transform the foundation into a positive influence for individuals who are battling addiction and drug misuse.

According to the statement, “It is important to us as a family to honor Matthew’s legacy,” which was conveyed. “The potential that the Matthew Perry Foundation has to help those suffering with this disease is something we are proud to bring to the world.”

On Monday, the well-known journalist Keith Morrison, who is also Perry’s stepfather, went to X (Twitter) to tweet a link to the foundation’s website and to ask his followers to consider contributing to the cause.

“This pitch is not the kind of thing that I typically do,” she said and continued. But this year is not like the others. Furthermore, the next day is Giving Tuesday,” Morrison writes. “Do what you can; he would have been grateful.”

Having struggled with substance misuse for the bulk of his own life, the late actor from Friends was a fervent supporter of programs that were designed to help people recover from substance abuse and alcoholism throughout his entire life.

As part of an interview that took place in November 2022 with the New York Times, Perry said that he “probably spent $9 million or something” over the course of many decades in an endeavor to get clean and that he had attended rehabilitation around 15 times.

Before Perry’s untimely passing by drowning at his home in Los Angeles on October 28, he expressed his wish that people would remember him for something other than Friends, despite the fact that Friends may have been the title for which he was most well-known.

The actor said that he would want to be remembered for who he was as a person and for people he helped in an interview that took place in November 2022 on the podcast Q with Tom Power.

“I would like to be remembered as somebody who lived well, loved well, and was a seeker,” Perry said to the crowd as the live recording was taking place.

“If someone comes up to me and says, ‘I can’t stop drinking,’ that is without a doubt the finest thing one could ever say about me. Can you lend me a hand? According to Perry, “I am able to say yes, follow up, and carry it out.” “And I have been saying this for a very long time: when I pass away, I do not want Friends to be the first thing that is remembered; rather, I want that to be the first thing that is spoken. And I want to spend the rest of my life demonstrating that.”
