Sue Beevers Memorial Fund

Sue Lyon Beevers was a popular, multi-talented woman who helped found Fresno Folklore Society.

   Sue was a driving force behind our organization, and was active in fostering Traditional Music in the Greater Fresno area until her passing from brain cancer in 2014.  Her good friend, Sherron Brown, led the effort to remember Sue by creating a memorial fund to support children and teens who wished to pursue traditional folk music forms, and to share their musical gifts in their own communities.

  The fund grows continuously with monthly donations from an anonymous donor; gifts to the fund from Society members and others; as well as fundraisers, including our annual Sue Beevers Memorial Concert held in the summer months.  All recipients of the scholarship are invited to perform and be a part of this annual concert.

Those who wish to contribute to the fund can do so either by

  • Using the Paypal button on this page.  Please be sure to make a note that wish your donation to be used specifically for "Sue Beevers Memorial."

  • Or, please send a check made out to Fresno Folklore Society, and mail to Attention:  Treasurer, P.O. Box 4617, Fresno, CA  93744. Please state on the check:  "Sue Beevers Memorial."
