Memorial Dance Scholarship Fund  

My mom was a dancer, and we’ve decided to offer a dance scholarship in her name, as a memorial. We’ve set up a GoFundMe page, the Rosie Murphy Dance Scholarship Fund, and if you’re inclined or inspired in any way to donate a little to the fund, my family and I would be profoundly grateful.

Our immediate goal is to secure $2500: enough funds to create a five year scholarship. Our longer term goal is to create a scholarship in perpetuity, which is possible if we can get $15,000 into our investment fund. It’s a big goal, but it’s not unachievable, and the idea of being able to be able to do something like that for Mom, and in her name, is part of what’s holding us together right now.

Love to you all,

That's a beautiful memorial. I loved dancing as a child; I hope your scholarship brings that joy to many others.
