Ryan Seacrest Foundation
TheRyan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education-focused initiatives. RSF’s primary initiative is to build broadcast media centers — Seacrest Studios — within pediatric hospitals for patients to explore the creative realms of radio, television and new media. Founded in 2009, RSF currently has Seacrest Studios at hospitals in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Orange County, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., Nashville and Orlando.In 2021, our funding of $100,000 supported the expansion of two new Seacrest Studios as well as helped upgrade and fix technology, educate and help patients host their own shows, and purchase items like iPads, camera gear and robots to safely deliver prizes to patient rooms.With Love Your Melon’s 2022 funding, Ryan Seacrest Foundation will extend their footprint by helping to build out three new studios in Salt Lake City, UT, Queens, NY and Memphis, TN. These new studios will allow even more pediatric patients to explore the creative world of broadcast media and experience live musical performances, meet-and-greets with celebrities and educational programming.
