For Immediate Release: Feb. 8, 2018

Statement from Randy Margraves and IBEW 665 on online fundraiser:

The following are statements from Randy Margraves and IBEW 665 regarding the GoFundMe online fundraiser that raised $31,311 to help Randy, who is the father of three daughters abused by Larry Nassar and a member of IBEW 665. After his actions against Nassar in court last week, Randy was the recipient of the online fundraiser, much of which came from supportive IBEW members locally and across the country.

While Randy deeply appreciates the outpouring of support, he says it is not needed for him. Those who donated to the fundraiser can choose to either get a refund or leave the donation to be given to charities that help survivors of sexual abuse. After March 9, any remaining funds in the account will be donated to local charities like Small Talk, RAVE, and the Firecracker Foundation.

“At the time of the incident, I didn’t know that the great brotherhood had done this, and I was overcome with gratitude when I found out. I appreciate everyone stepping up to support me, but help is not needed for me. After giving people the chance to get a refund, the donations will go to organizations that help the sisterhood of survivors and other victims of abuse.” – Randy Margraves

“IBEW 665 unequivocally supports Randy, his family, and all of the survivors of these horrible crimes. This situation has demonstrated the strength of the bond among our union brothers and sisters. It’s uplifting to see how willing people are to support those in need, and we’re glad to see the money going to organizations that help survivors of abuse.”

Wow, thank you all for your support.

I initially started this gofundme campaign as way to help cover any legal and court costs that Randy may have after this mornings news.

As we all know, Randy was not charged after the fact.

I will work with him and his family to ensure the funds collected will go to a good cause to help victims of sexual abuse.
