Kevin Spacey charitable foundation shut down in U.K.

By Alexandra Heilbron on March 1, 2018 | 7 Comments

Kevin SpaceyKevin Spacey‘s charitable foundation, which worked to offer scholarships and other support to aspiring young performers, closed down its U.K. site yesterday (Feb. 28). The website ( has a message on their “About Us” page that reads:

“The Trustees have reached the conclusion that the work of the Kevin Spacey Foundation UK is no longer viable and as such the Foundation will be closing on the 28 February 2018. The Trustees would like to thank all their partners, artists and organisations for the great work that has been done in association with the Foundation. The Trustees hope that the objects of the charity will be taken forward by other organisations.”

The foundation had scaled back its operations since Spacey was accused of alleged sexual misconduct with a teenager last October. He immediately offered an apology (and outed himself as a gay man) on Twitter, which was met with serious backlash from the LGBTQ community.

The U.S. arm of the foundation — the Kevin Spacey Foundation: America — is still up and running for the time being, though it’s unclear how long it will be in operation. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    They should shut down the American one too. Just saying.

    Let’s not continue to persecute Kevin Spacey. He made a mistake and has paid for it dearly.
    We all have made a mistake in our life and regret it, ask for forgiveness by the higher power and move on with our life.
    Why can’t we follow the scriptures and forgive the sins of others as we want our sins forgiven.

    If the foundation does good work, just change the name and continue. His name and reputation is soiled but don’t let the good work of a charity be shut down because he was just the name in the title. I’m sure the foundation took on a life of it’s own.

    If found guilty, they should be forced to wear a tattoo on their for head so everybody can see the type of person he his. I’m sure that his recent “outings”will make his life so much fun to live, but he’s the one who brought it on. It’s time to get rid of the he said/she said, and the only winner is the man worth more money than the woman. Heck, since they’re all stars, they should be forced to pay the victim’s lawyers for each victim until he’s tried in in court, not a tribunal, but a court. And maybe, just maybe, he will finally know how many lives he’s screwed by thinking, I’m better than all of them, and I won’t get caught. I’m so happy to see how many women are willing to put their stories out there, it takes strength, because the way of life is still the one with the deeper pockets win. If they have to pay their victims lawyers and what ever restitution, they might actually change. But it’s hard for people to change. They just might going back to their usual ways. They need jail time, which means a real court of law. Let’s see how Kevin feels when he’s raped in jail by the other men. Again, maybe then he will finally change. Until then, boycott absolutely everything he’s involved in, and ensure he’s never hired in film or TV. See how he feels to have his life totally f***ed over, and don’t forget that tattoo announcing his crimes. Also, instructions should go to all facilities that offer to laser off a tattoo, and say they will be fined and serve jail time for even attempting to laser them off. It’s time for the opposite sex to have to wear their red letter about his assaults. If he really can change, don’t forget to use a lie detector, he can them get it layered off at his expense, with a letter stating he can get it done legally. Is it too harsh? Not really, he’s been holding people in his life by lying and manipulation. The only way you can show hes bad is the tatoo, and everyone needs to know what type of person he is. Hopefull, by the time this all over, he’ll be in jail for his crimes and all his money lost. Lost money, hmm, that would also be a fabulous thing to take more of his power away. All proceeds should go to women’s charities, but don’t allow him to get any tax benefits as he won’t be donating the money. We need to be harsh about all of them. Hollywood has covered up for these losers for far too long. No one has the right to

    Don’t forget, boycott all of the these idiots, and make sure that a real court should be judging them, not some tribunal that will likely help him to cover up.

    Jose Not till, he has not paid the price. It was NOT ONE MISTAKE, and these do have laws to prosecute people like him. I still can’t believe you think he just made one mistake. The accusations against him continue to come in, and you want to what? Give the bad bay a little slap on the wrist, because he feels he entitled to do anything he wants because of his position of power. Time for him to lose that and not allow him to work in ANY job that gives him power.

    Spacey has been a terrible predator for many years with countless victims! Forgiveness will take a long time, if ever. His name should never appear anywhere – for the victims sake, make him disappear.
