Two funds have been created to honor the legacy of Blaze Bernstein:
BLAZE BERNSTEIN MEMORIAL FUND
Those who wish to honor Blaze and his memory may make a contribution to the Blaze Bernstein Memorial Fund. The Blaze Bernstein Memorial Fund will provide support to organizations that Blaze would have liked to support in addition to charities that work to protect children from violence and that foster emotional health, such as the Orangewood Foundation.
BLAZE BERNSTEIN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT FUND
The Blaze Bernstein Memorial Scholarship Endowment was seeded by a generous gift from Brad & Kim Cohen to fund scholarships for Orange County college-bound seniors who have demonstrated academic achievement, service to their community and have overcome adversity. These students should emulate the good that this tragedy has brought out of people as a lasting legacy to Blaze.
Please note: Payments by credit card will incur a 3% administrative cost. Your donation or contribution to a fund will be reduced by this amount. You will receive a tax receipt for the full amount charged.
Contributions by check to the Blaze Bernstein Memorial Fund or the Blaze Bernstein Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund can be mailed to the Foundation. Please clearly specify the fund name in the memo line.
