ABOUT 26 LETTERS Ross DeMerchant, Founder

"26 LETTERS" is the voice of that says "I believe in you."


26 Letters was launched as a 501c3 non-profit organization in the fall of 2016, and is named after my first book of the same title which tells the stories of my life and how they shaped me.  I started this organization as a direct result of my 44 years of telling anyone anywhere,"I believe in you."  Frankly, I want this next chapter of my career to be my strongest effort yet.  Greater than the success of any program, nothing compares to an individual realizing that someone sees them and believes in them.   I founded 26 Letters to be my platform in communicating life.  Your support for 26 Letters gives oxygen to my voice and efforts to say "I believe in you."  I would not be able to do what I do without your support of 26 Letters.  I am sincerely humbled and energized by the generous contributions from donors across our global community.  Whether it is in a coffee shop having numerous one-on-one conversations, writing, creating talks for social media, or speaking to small and large crowds, know that your support goes towards communicating life to anyone, anywhere. Every penny counts. I look forward to you partnering with me so that together, we can be a voice that says, "I see you. I believe in you."  Would you consider becoming a partner with me?


I believe in you.




I would not be able to do my life's work without the generous contribution from donors, donors who believe there is life bigger than life.  Your support has the power to transform someone’s world today. All of your support goes towards communicating life to anyone, anywhere. Every penny counts. We look forward to working together and being a voice that says, "I believe in you."
