The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship

$15,710 of $15,500 goal

Raised by 92 people in 15 months
The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarsip will be an endowed scholarship at Southwestern Community College in Sylva for students who are degree-seeking and are authors or aspiring authors.  The scholarship will be administered through the SCC Foundation Office.  The Foundation is a bona fide 501 (c) (3) as defined by the IRS.  $15,000 is the amount needed for the endowment to be created, and $500 will be awarded to a selected recipient each year.  The additional $500 requested will allow the SCC Foundation to make an immediate award for the 2018-2019 year.  Any additional funds raised will go into the endowment, so additional funds can be awarded at a later date. 

Until the money is raised, all book profits made by Eva's books will be donated towards the endowment.  Click here to purchase Eva's books.

Donations can also be made directly to the SCC Foundation:

Memo: Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship

The first $2,500 in donations will be matched by a private donor. 

Eva McCall is the author of the popular Edge of Heaven, Children of the Mountain, Lucy's Recipe for Mountain Living, Murder on Haint Branch and Button Box books. Eva was a native of Franklin North Carolina, spending her childhood with the grandmother that she portrayed in her books, Lucy Davenport Carpenter. She graduated from Franklin High School, and attended Pfeiffer College.

After marrying her husband, George McCall, they moved to Michigan where George worked for General Motors, and Eva became a beautician. Eva began taking writing classes at Oakland University and Mott Community College, where she then was a member of several professional writing groups.

Since the release of her earlier books, which have sold thousands of copies, many fans awaited the release of "Murder on Haint Branch", which Eva said was the most fun writing. In early 2014, Eva published "Button Box", a Civil War novel that was written over a decade ago.

Eva passed away on November 20, 2017, but her memory continues to live in spirit and through her stories.

Hello all, and happy Monday! I wanted to share another quick update with you. As some of you know, I sell my own books (thanks to the great teaching of Eva). I will be releasing my new book, Disciple, on August 4. Until then, I am donating 50% of all of my proceeds to The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship. Again, that's 50% of The One, Aluria, Vigilante, Disciple and The Aluria Adventures (Three Book Collection). You can purchase your copies now at www.tylermcook.com. Continue to support the scholarship!

Hello all! Thank you all so much for your continued support for this scholarship! I have some news. A recipient has been selected for the 2018-2019 year. That means the amount we've raised has been reduced by $500. So, the total needed to be raised for the endowment has now we up to $16,000. That's not bad, though. We're so close to meeting that goal. Share this with your family and friends and we'll get this scholarship funded in no time! -Tyler

Per GoFundMe policy, I am informing everyone that I have withdrawn all the money raised online thus far, and donated it to the SCC Foundation. Further, because GoFundMe takes a percentage of all donations as a processing fee, I have personally donated the amount that went towards processing, making the donation to the Foundation a total of $1650.

We still have a long way to go, so this fundraiser is not over. This page will continue to stay open, and I will repeat this process until we have reached our goal of $15,500. Every donation matters, so reach out to your friends and family! Thank you all again for your continued support.
