The Evergreen Scholarship Fund

In 2001, the Robin Wightman Scholarship Fund was formed to honor Board member Robin Wightman, who died in 2001. After Board member Joe Jenkins’ death in 2008, and in order to honor other people important to Evergreen, the fund was renamed and will now be called the Evergreen Scholarship Fund. Since 2001, this fund has provided nearly $12,000 in financial assistance to more than 200 individuals who otherwise would have been unable to participate in Evergreen’s programs.

This worthy and active fund regularly needs replenishment. If you would like to honor a loved one or friend by furthering this important purpose, please send your donation to Evergreen A Center for Balanced Living Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 744, Easton, MD 21601 or call us at (410) 819-3395 to donate by credit card. On behalf of those who will benefit from your generosity, we thank you.

Robin Wightman

Robin Wightman, who died in March 2001 following a long and valiant battle with breast cancer, had both attended and led many programs at Evergreen over the years, and at the time of her death was serving on the center’s Board of Directors.

In all aspects of her life, Robin showed a reverence for life, an awareness of the interconnectedness of all parts of nature, and a respect for various traditions around the world.
