Andrew Bretz Memorial Scholarship

$18,263 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 206 people in 12 months
Created August 25, 2018
Team Andrew
Dr. Andrew Bretz died tragically and unexpectedly in Kingston, Ontario on August 21, 2018. He was 42. Andrew was a loving son, brother, partner, and friend to so many of us, and the magnitude of his loss cannot be overestimated. 

To honour the life, leadership, and legacy of Andrew, we are raising money to establish an English scholarship in his memory, at a soon to be determined University.  All of the money raised here will be transferred to a fund to be called the Andrew Bretz Memorial Scholarship

Andrew's family and loved ones greatly appreciate your support through this unthinkably tragic time. We hope that this scholarship can ensure that his enthusiasm as a teacher, and tireless work in the Shakespearean academic community will never be forgotten.

Hello everyone

It is hard to believe that Andrew left us almost a year ago...

I know many of us are still struggling with his absence in our lives and miss him terribly. The 21st of August will be a difficult day for our family, and for all his friends and colleagues.

However, I wanted to take a moment let everyone who has donated to the GoFundMe campaign that we are finishing talks with a major university in Ontario about hosting the scholarship. I hope to update you further in the coming weeks with a final announcement. We are all so excited that the money we have raised in Andrew’s name will go to help those in a vocation which he loved so much. Any further funds donated will be continuously added to the scholarship.

I had hoped to be able to make this a reality earlier in the year, however we have been quite busy with an addition to our own family. Our second daughter was born back in May. We named her Andie (Andreia), after her late uncle.


Thank you all for your support and love,


Chris
