Teamwork proved to be the driving force toward making our goal of a permanent scholarship endowment a reality—we are getting so close! The matching funds campaign set up by Jeff and Toni Slepak in December 2022 brought in $8,000!! $500 of that went to the upcoming award (school year 2023 – 24), and $7,500 went into the endowment fund. Along with Jeff and Toni’s $5,000, the campaign brought in a grand total of $13,000! We are now ever so close to our permanent goal of $25,000 as you all can see charted on the endowment status page here: https://farissmusicscholarship.org/about-the-scholarship/endowmentstatus/ We are now only $2,538 shy of fully funding the Endowment and creating this permanent legacy in the name of Jack and Pat Fariss at their Alma Mater Sam Houston State University. Please help us make it to that full funding. Any and every donation helps bring us closer.
