Grammy Award-winning artist TobyMac has asked that in lieu of flowers for the funeral of his 21-year-old son, that people give to a charity he started in Truett’s name.

“Truett Foster Mckeehan had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match. Since the age of 12, he knew he wanted to make music. Dreams are so important to kids growing up. Too many kids do not have the financial ability to pursue their dreams. We want to use this fund to help kids do just that. Get an education, to pursue music, to get the chance to live their dream. Truett would have loved that,” the description of the Truett Foster Foundation reads.

On Tuesday, TobyMac shared a photo on Facebook announcing the foundation.

“He is the God of the hills and the valleys. And He is beautiful Above All Things,” a scripture on the photo reads.

According to the foundation’s website, donations made in Truett’s name will help send “vulnerable youth to college, that they may realize their God-given potential to change the lives of others.”

One hundred percent of the donations will be used to fund scholarships in partnership with the Global Orphan Project. The Christian organization will underwrite all general and administrative expenses in honor of the aspiring musician.
