Silent Knightss Nonprofit Corporation was established in June of 2017, and its 501(c)(3) Approval came in July of 2017. In initial efforts, we were advised that the process would take 9 months and an estimated $2,000. Driven by emotion and passion, Silent Knightss was founded on a self funded $700.00 and it took 3 months. We are proud to now celebrate each year's anniversary, and will always do it Silent Knightss style! Have fun, make the moment count, and do so while providing a charitable result!
The Silent Knightss inaugural event was a Morris Hills Memorial Alumni Reunion. The event was spawn from the story of a 53 year old friend & son that was taken way too soon. Proceeds from the event created a $4,000 scholarship awarded to a Morris Hills 2018 senior. The scholarship applicants where instructed to write a 3 page essay on how they related to our event and the Silent Knightss mission. The results were emotionally staggering, and the decision making process was crushingly difficult. We picked one, but all the applications from teenagers experiencing early loss jaw dropped our expectations. Inspired by the applications received and their commonality with our first event's story, proceeds of this event will always be dedicating to a cause that has hit our hearts and souls: Families affected by the early loss of a parent or child (more scholarships, kid's camps, families of shootings, addiction, tragedy & disease)
