Thanksgiving Scholarship Funding Update

As of 11/22/23, we’ve raised $22,250, leaving only $2,750 to go to reach the full endowment minimum. I mailed written thank you notes to all donors earlier this week, but let me take advantage of Thanksgiving weekend to reiterate how very grateful I am for the tremendous generosity that has put us within 11% of our goal within a few short months.

The MSU Foundation recently revamped their giving page and have added the Gerrie Collins Endowed Piano Scholarship to the roster of selectable funds, making it easier than ever for those who’ve been meaning to donate to do so. Simply follow this link and input some combination of keywords in the search bar (e.g., gerrie, collins, piano), then select the appropriate fund from the results list. Alternatively, you can download the pdf form here and mail in a good, old-fashioned check.

I’m hopeful that–as more of Gerrie’s former students, friends, and colleagues find their way to this site in the coming weeks–we can make another significant advance toward full funding. And then there’s always Santa.:-)

Thanks again for your support!
