Thank you to everyone who has donated to “The Carmen Macdonald Memorial Fund!” An LLC has been created by Stephen & Karen Macdonald, and through this LLC we will continue to manage, or be a guardian of the fund exclusively for the benefit of the children. The Carmen Macdonald Memorial Fund remains solely for the continuing education of Jackson & Kendall Macdonald. As of March 14, the Department of Human Services removed Jackson & Kendall Macdonald from their mother’s care. Carmen’s children are now “Ward Of The State of Oregon for the next 12 months!” They are in a loving and safe home.

Please continue to pray for these children and for the rest of our family as we wait for the Department of Human Service’s decisions on the temporary and permanent placement of Jackson & Kendall.

Feel free to email or call us anytime. Thank you for your prayers and contribution to this fund.

Stephen & Karen Macdonald says…

The outpouring of Love and support for Carmen has been truly amazing. We have heard so many individual stories as to how Carmen touched your lives. He truly was a light to others while we now know, he himself, was living in darkness. I am greatly grieved by Carmen’s death. I am also greatly concerned over the financial fate of Carmen’s children, Jackson and Kendall. My brother left them with limited financial stability. However, prior to Carmen’s death, I promised Carmen I would assist him as needed in sending his children to college. I had no idea I would be called to this task without him. I remain true to my commitment to see that Carmen’s children attend college and my family will be there to support that endeavor when and as necessary. Thank you for the comfort and prayers you extended Carmen’s family. Please know we will continue to manage this fund so Carmen’s children are able to seek their college education when the time comes.
