Many people have asked about donations.  Below is information for one fund that has been set up in Wynne’s honor to which donations may be made.  There are other appropriate places to make donations as well, including the Third Street Music School and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  More details to come.

In honor of Wynne’s contribution to Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) the Wu Fund has been established to assist students who study in China or take intensive Chinese classes. To contribute, please send a check payable to BHSEC PTA with ‘Wu Fund’ in the memo to:

Wynne in Yu Gardens, Shanghai - December 2008

The Wu Fund supports cross cultural exchange and intensive language study by BHSEC students through its awards for the following purposes:

(i) Providing an additional stipend to recipients of the Wu Travel Scholarship to enable them to take full advantage of the China Exchange opportunities either during the recipient’s time in China or to assist in hosting his/her exchange partner;

(ii) Providing additional scholarships for the China Exchange program as funds allow;

(iii) Providing support for BHSEC students to participate in a Chinese language program during the summer.

Decisions on the amount, use and recipients of the Wu Award will be made by the Chinese language faculty in consultation with (1) their colleagues on the Foreign Language faculty and (2) the Office of Student Affairs which administers the Wu Travel Scholarship. Wu Fund awards will be based on merit and need, using the same procedures and criteria as are used to determine the Wu Travel Scholarship.

Monies in the Wu Fund will be held by  BHSEC in a separate account and administered at the direction of the Wu Fund Administrator, a Foreign Language faculty member, selected by his/her foreign language colleagues.

Spirit of The Wynne Wu Fund

Wynne’s intent is to make opportunities more accessible, particularly to students who might not otherwise have the resources to partake in certain programs and activities.  Through her own life, Wynne was the beneficiary of various merit-based scholarships and grants and other funds that enabled her to pursue music and learning that she would not otherwise have had the resources to pursue.  She wanted to help ensure that other similarly situated students do not miss out on those opportunities.
