We have been very fortunate to have been embraced by our friends, families and professional colleagues in the way that we have. The Golkin Fund has surpassed our initial goals by a wide margin – we are profoundly grateful for any and all of the support that has come our way.
Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) is, in theory, our parent organization. They provided us with the resources, support and training we needed to be up and running within just a few months of the fund’s inception. Due to SEO’s commitment to be the administrative backbone for the Andrew Golkin Memorial Scholarship Fund, 100% of all donations go directly towards services and scholarships for the SEO Scholars. We could not have achieved what we have without their support.
Our corporate friends have been incredibly generous. They have made significant donations that have allowed us to amass a fund that significantly increases the services and resources that are available to our students. Key sponsors, past and present, include Bacardi International, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Variety: The Children’s Charity, and Diane Von Furstenberg–who has graciously donated the use of her space for our silent auction fundraisers.
Our friends, old and new, continue to offer tremendous support in time, products and encouragement. A diverse group of products has been donated for our silent auction, ranging from tickets to movie premieres to exotic vacation getaways to high-end fashions from the leading design houses. Some of the items made available to us have been from the following supporters:
It is because of you that we have been able to raise over a million dollars! Thank you for all of
your past and future support.
