Casey Feldman Scholarship

Joel Feldman & Dianne Anderson, Casey Feldman's parents, at Day of Service 2012The Casey Feldman Alternative Breaks Memorial Endowment was established in honor of Casey Feldman, who passed away on July 17, 2009, after being hit by a car as a pedestrian. Casey’s life was much too short but she managed in those 21 years to accomplish so much and to touch the lives of many through her kindness, love, friendship, caring and compassion. Each year, the Casey Feldman Memorial Scholarship helps to fund Alternative Breaks trips for a number of CU Boulder students who may not otherwise be able to afford the opportunity.
