A new grant from a familiar donor will help keep the music playing at Fresno Pacific University.
The Bertha and John Garabedian Charitable Foundation donated $15,000 for music scholarships. Students who are graduates of Roosevelt or Sierra high schools, have a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and are involved in music at FPU are eligible. This grant is in addition to the regular support the foundation gives to Roosevelt Revolution Soccer Club, a university outreach program serving more than 100 community children each year.
The private Garabedian foundation primarily aids Central California charitable organizations including those serving education, health, human services and the arts.
