What started with a simple wish to begin a scholarship in Ian's memory grew into much more than we could have anticipated. In addition to the $1,000 art scholarship offered to local area high school seniors each Spring, we also award a $1,000 art grant through the Santa Maria Art Council Grant Showcase each May.
Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to meet our first goal - establishing an Endowment Account which will allow these art scholarships to continue in perpetuity. The Ian M Hassett Foundation Endowment Account was opening in 2019 for $50,000
In order to have more control over the scholarship and grant, it was necessary to form the Ian M Hassett Foundation. The Foundation was officially recognized by the state of California on June 12, 2013 (almost one year after Ian died).
