Millard Fontenot Memorial Scholarship Fund
Many of the regional retreats offered scholarships to their events. The scholarships were awarded to men who exhibited a commitment to the men’s knitting community and were paid for by generous donors to the various regional scholarship funds.
When Millard Fontenot (Mill), a much beloved member of the men’s knitting community died in 2018, we set up a non-profit memorial fund to consolidate all the regional scholarship funds, and still allow any donations to be designated to specific regional retreats.
If you’d like to help support the work of spreading fiber-related crafts, a donation to the Millard Fontenot Memorial Scholarship Fund will be used either for an award from the general fund, or an award to one of the local retreats in your area.
