Dave Bova was a dedicated artisan, collaborator, and friend. 

He meant so much to so many people both in his industry and beyond, and he will be greatly missed.  

To help ease the financial burden of organizing his work, professional life, and design studio, we are trying to raise money to help cover his studio rent and expenses, as well as the cost to keep his assistant Cassie Williams employed, for the next month and a half it will take to organize and pack up his work space.  

The hope is that we will also be able to cover the cost of someone to help assist Cassie in organizing his stock and supplies, as well as a storage unit to store his things while his family takes the time to decide what they would like to do with his estate. 

He was highly dedicated to his craft, and we thought that this would help ease the pressure of taking care of his space respectfully, in a sad and emotional time.  

With love,
His friends and colleagues, Sara and Jessica

*The funds will be deposited into an design checking account, overseen by Jessica which will be used to pay for the above.  Receipts for supplies, invoices for work, and rent, along with any additional spending will be kept, and given to the family for their records.

Dear all:

We want to thank you for your amazing support and this incredible showing of love for Dave. We are all truly grateful, and overwhelmed at the amount of funds raised. Meeting our goal so quickly, and then going above it, says something special about all of you, and something truly special about the person that Dave was.

Because we have been able to meet above and beyond our original ask, we will be closing the Gofundme account today. Any overage will go to offsetting the cost of memorial/celebration of life services.

Thank you so much for your show of support. There are no words to express our gratitude.

Lots of love,
Jessica, Sara, Zev and the Bova family.
