    Weʼve raised £19,898 to establish the Khadija Saye Memorial Fund

    Funded on Thursday, 8th February 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Khadija Saye Memorial Fund is being set up by Nicola Green, Dave Lewis and Ingrid Swenson to support young artists like Khadija to realise their potential. It will be used for study, informal training, internships or mentoring for a young person(s) whose background and circumstance might not necessarily grant them access to such support.

    We will work with partners, funders and professional organisations to ensure that money raised through this Fund will be used effectively to offer the best possible support to emerging artists.

    “Khadija was a true artist with a sensitive and generous singular vision, and will be missed by everyone who knew her. We have been inundated with messages of love and support over the last few days.

    On behalf of all of us involved in Khadija Saye's life as an artist, we are setting up this Fund in memory of Khadija, to help others like her to pursue their passion as artists. In due course, we will establish a formal Fund and will make a decision together with those involved in Khadija's journey as an artist, and with professional partners within the cultural sector, about the best way to channel these donations for this cause.

    We will keep all donors informed of future developments. Thank you for your support.”
