About The Hello In There Foundation
Established in 2021 by the family after John’s death, the work of the foundation is inspired and guided by John’s simple song title, Hello In There. The foundation mobilizes John’s intensely devoted community of supporters in order to raise resources through tax-deductible donations, event revenue, and sponsorships. In turn, the foundation, often with matching funds from the Prine Family and Oh Boy Records, gives grants to nonprofit organizations that align with John’s ethos, with a particular priority for supporting community nonprofits dedicated to caring for those who are marginalized, discriminated against or, for any reason, are otherwise forgotten.
