Tyler Perry Donates $750K to Aid Low-Income Seniors in Atlanta Against Displacement

February 16, 2023 | By Kali Girl

With generosity and community support, Tyler Perry pledged $750,000 to help prevent the displacement of low-income seniors in Atlanta. According to Yahoo, Perry’s donation is specifically focused on supporting those who live in the area surrounding Tyler Perry Studios.

Rising property taxes have been a major and long-time issue in the area. As a result of Perry’s donation, he will also pay off the back property taxes for every low-income senior in the city, including county and school taxes owed.

But that’s not all – the source went on to explain that Perry’s incredible donation will also include an additional $500,000 donated annually over the next five years.

This funding will be used to freeze property taxes for 100 low-income seniors in Atlanta over the next two decades, providing much-needed stability and security for those who are most vulnerable to displacement.

This recurring donation aims to financially cover the difference between present property taxes and potential increases to those taxes for the next 20 years.
