About Princess Grace Foundation-USA
National in scope, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA is dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging talent in theater, dance, and film by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships.

During Her lifetime, Princess Grace of Monaco was committed to helping emerging artists realize their career goals. Following Her death in 1982, Prince Rainier III of Monaco mobilized a group of individuals to establish the Princess Grace Foundation-USA as a tribute to Her legacy. Since then, and until His death in 2005, Prince Rainier and His children have been active in the oversight and direction of the organization. Now in its 30th year, the Foundation continues its mission to assist performing artists in honor of Princess Grace.

About Becky’s Fund
Becky’s Fund is a non-profit organization founded by Becky Lee headquartered in Washington, D.C. The organization serves victims of domestic violence and abuse.
Becky’s Fund was started in November 2006 and subsequently achieved Non-profit status in March 2007. As a college student, founder Becky Lee saw first hand the effects of domestic abuse through her work with criminal law attorneys who specialized in acquitting battered women that had been imprisoned for killing their abusers in self-defense. Through the stories of these women, she was inspired to embark on a career of her own in exposing and preventing domestic abuse. She competed on “Survivor: Cook Islands” hoping to use her exposure as a platform to draw national attention to the issue. She was second runner-up on the competitive show and used her entire prize winnings to fund a domestic violence awareness non-profit, Becky’s Fund. In addition, she aims to raise awareness to the lack of reporting of domestic violence cases in the Asian community.

DC attorney Becky Lee is the founder of Becky's Fund.
