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 Righetti High School Seniors, we will also be awarding a $1,000 art grant through the Santa Maria Art Council Grant Showcase each May.

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 following Ian's death).

Our first Board of Directors meeting was held on August 10, 2013.  Our Board of Directors consist of:
Eric Hassett, Executive Director
Gary Laier, Corporate Operations Director
Stefanie Hassett, Finance Director
Amy Smith, Secretary
Autumn Jennings, Artistic Director
Tempest Plott, Vision Director

The Ian M Hassett Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
