The Jenny Education Fund
We graciously accept monetary contributions to a fund created to honor a vivacious woman, Jenny Makofsky, who whole-heartedly embraced life and was known as a "Keeper of the Spirit" for children and storytelling. She was killed in an auto accident in 2004, long before her time. This Memorial Fund was created to help continue her life's vision.
Jenny was instrumental in the creation of the Storytelling Association of California, was on the mission statement committee and worked diligently to make the Bay Area Storytelling Festival happen year after year. She told stories at the Oakland Public Libraries and Bay Area schools creating quirky and engaging stories for children.
"The Jenny Education Fund" is making it possible for students from Northern California communities to attend the BASF Study Trips and hear Storytellers from around the world. And the fund made it possible for the 500 children at Kimball Elementary in Antioch to personally experience the magic of Maynard Moose.
If you would like to support the continuation of these activities, you can send a tax-deductible contribution to the address below. Thank you for supporting our efforts in helping school-children discover the Magic of Storytelling.
