We would sincerely like to thank everyone for their donations towards the Frankie 100 Scholarships. We have now reached our goal, enabling 20 worthy candidates to attend Frankie 100 who would otherwise have been unable to be there.
Thank you to following individuals who have made generous donations to the Frankie 100 Scholarship Fund:
- 1929 Studios
Ben & Sheri Yau
George Gee Orch.
Though donations towards the scholarships have now closed, you are welcome to make a donation to the Frankie Manning Foundation which will go towards other scholarships and programming.
In order to open up the New York celebration to a few more people, we raised funds to finance scholarships to the event. Frankie 100 organizers set aside a limited number of passes for attendees who have financial need. Your donations qualified for tax deductions through the non-profit Frankie Manning Foundation to the extent allowable in your country.
We’ve already heard about some individuals who could benefit from the scholarships, but if you know of an exceptionally committed lindy hopper who cannot afford to go to Frankie 100 without this subsidy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
