Adam Swope Memorial Fund

$14,985 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 183 people in 3 months
We are sad to announce that our beloved leader and friend, Adam Swope, suddenly passed away Saturday afternoon in a tragic car accident.

Kind, smart, patient,…Adam was the best of us.

This fund was organized to donate to the scholarship fund his parents have started in his name.

Adam gave the best of himself to everyone without asking anything in return; whether it was a frantic phone call about precincts or helping to cover a friend's bills, Adam demonstrated generosity in all he did. Let's reflect this generosity to raise $10,000 for the Adam H. Swope Scholarship Fund.

Hello everyone! Here is a message from Kathy and Bob Swope.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear friends of Adam,

It is unbelievably hard to find the words to express our gratitude to the Willistown-Malvern Democrats, Adam’s friends and colleagues, for the outpouring of sympathy, love, and support we have received since the day our world shattered apart.

We are overcome with appreciation for the donations to the Adam Harrison Swope Scholarship fund, the cards, facebook posts, emails, texts, and all of the wonderful sharing of personal stories of how Adam touched your lives.

If we had one wish it would be that everyone would continue Adam’s work for social justice. His favorite quote was from Gandhi: “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”.

Adam taught us so much compassion and humility, we hope to always live up to his democratic ideals.

Sincerest gratitude,
Bob and Kathy Swope

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for your generous donations. It is amazing that thanks to your generosity, we have been able to raise so much, far above our original goal of $10,000. Adam's family has requested that all donations go to a scholarship fund started in his name at Reading High School. We spoke with Corin McElroy, the point person at Reading High School for the fund, and let her know that a check for the amount would be coming to her as soon as Go Fund Me lets the withdrawal go through. Because Reading High School does not have a account in which we can directly send the money from Go Fund Me, we will personally withdraw and then write a check for the full amount. Corin will give us a call when she receives the check (it will go via certified mail) and will hand deliver it to their accounting department.

Let us know if you have any questions,
Willistown Malvern Democrats
