The Kara Lewis LGBTQ Scholarship

$1,680 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 25 months
Kara Lewis was a marvel who touched many lives. Those fortunate enough to know her were amazed by her courage, charm, wit, and deep kindness.  We are thus creating a scholarship to benefit LGBTQ students, to give to them in the same way that Kara gave so much to us.

Hello, I've discovered that GoFundMe is set up for short-term campaigns and thus its policies do not easily allow a sustained drive to raise the funds necessary for the scholarship. After much negotiation with URI, I've been able to work out something with the Foundation. I'm withdrawing the funds from GoFundMe and will transfer them to the URI Foundation. I will circulate word on how to donate there when everything is fully set up.
Thank you for your support.
