George Lindsey Endowed Scholarship

First, thank you for being such a good friend to George Lindsey. He loved spending time with his friends and sharing a joke (or two!). The words on his gravestone, “I’m glad I made you laugh,” really do show how much joy George found in bringing laughter to others.

Something else that gave George much joy was helping young people, whether it was raising money for special needs kids or providing opportunities in film education for high school and college students through his film festival. This is why the George Lindsey UNA Film Festival and the UNA Department of Communications surprised George in 2011 with the announcement that a scholarship for film students was being established in his honor at UNA.

When George passed away a year later, very generous donations had provided almost half the funds needed to endow the scholarship at the minimum of $25,000.  Since then, donations have continued to come in, but very slowly, and we are now facing a hard deadline of December 2017 to raise the remaining $12,000 to fully endow the George Lindsey Film and Digital Media Scholarship.

Please help us meet this deadline by donating to the scholarship fund. Help us continue George’s legacy of bringing joy to others by helping prepare a student to enter the film industry George loved so much.

Donations may be made below or, you may also mail your donation to:
George Lindsey UNA Film Festival
UNA Box 5050, Florence, AL.  35632
(Please make your check out to UNA Foundation, and note George Lindsey Film and Digital Media Scholarship in the memo line.)
Thank you!
