Successful Fundraising!

Ericprint1

So grateful to the supporters of the Eric Sweet Memorial Scholarship thus far. We’ve almost made it to the $10,000 mark! Only about $15,000 more to get this baby endowed forever!
The time to enter for a chance to win artwork has ended unfortunately, but you can donate to the scholarship whenever.
I will draw for the artwork and announce the winners at the end of the week 🙂

April Scholarship Fundraising Opportunity

As April 6th—the anniversary of the loss of my husband, Eric Sweet—approaches I have been reflecting over the events of the last year…thinking about the changes we’ve all experienced. I realize this void is felt not only in my own life, but also in the lives of Eric’s family, friends, colleagues, and students.

I, along with the MU Department of Art, would like to thank you for your support during this time—especially for your support of the Eric Sweet Memorial Scholarship fund that we established last year. The scholarship, along with the t-shirts, stickers, and sales of his work, has been an amazing way to attempt to share Eric’s legacy with others. The catch is that we can’t actually distribute any scholarship money to students until we reach the full endowment amount of $25,000 (or more!).

While folks have an opportunity to donate to the fund every day of the year, this April we are going to be celebrating Eric’s life in a very special way. I am offering some unique incentives in order to encourage donations and allow us to honor Eric as the one-year anniversary settles in on us. All donations received between April 1-30th will be entered into a drawing to win a print by Eric Sweet. I have chosen a wide variety of lovely pieces from his collection to inspire benefaction. [***UPDATE: I HAVE EXTENDED THE DONATION DATES UNTIL MAY 15TH!]

Please join us in these fundraising efforts should you feel so inclined. And know how much your support has helped me personally, as well as the fund. Eric and I always hoped to establish a scholarship once he got his “dream job” and it pleases me to no end knowing that together we are making one of his dreams come true.

There are multiple ways to donate to the scholarship fund:
