Lin Family Support Fund

Donation protected
On November 15, 2020, the Lin Family lost Edwin Lin, a shock and tragedy that has rocked the community and changed the family to a one provider dynamic.

Ed was a fantastic father, the most kind and fun-loving soul, a community-builder, and an excellent career hydrogeologist. He always had an easy smile, genuinely cared for everyone around him, and was fierce on the tennis court. Most importantly, he was a loving father of incredible girls, Naomi age 12, and Tasmin age 9. Ed will always be with us through the bright eyes and radiant smiles of the girls.

This fund has been set up to rally around Phoebe and the girls as they establish a new normal. The funds will go toward unforeseen expenses related to the sudden and tragic loss the family is experiencing and is critical for supporting the girl’s education in the future. If you have worked with Phoebe or Ed, or had their lives touch yours, please join us in directly supporting the Lin family.
