The late Brittany Murphy's mother Sharon and the actress' husband Simon Monjack posted a letter on The Brittany Murphy Foundation's Web site stating that they would be refunding any donations given to their organization.

The letter explains their decision to return the donations, reading in part: "We began the Brittany Murphy Foundation to honor Brittany's wishes and to give her family, friends, and fans a way of keeping her legacy alive. In an effort to get the foundation off the ground quickly, we established it as a private foundation with plans to apply for non-profit status down the road. However, after some thought, we have decided instead to wait until we have our non-profit status approved before proceeding to insure that we can truly honor Brittany's charitable desires. Any donations made up until this point will be returned until we have all our paperwork solidified."
Brittany passed away on December 20. She was 32.
