Emily Janzen was a lovely and talented musician and actress in the Chilliwack area before her life came to a tragic end. In her memory, we would like to start a bursary fund for students pursuing a performing arts education.
To set up an ongoing bursary, we need to raise enough capital to invest in a long-term deposit, and grant bursaries from the interest. Every dollar you give will mean more money towards bursary funding for students in need.
The funds will be administered by The Chilliwack School of Performing Arts, The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, The Chilliwack Academy of Music and GWGraham Music Department. None of the money raised will go to administration – everything will be part of the bursary fund.
Emily was a brilliant and talented musician and actress, and we want her legacy to continue through the community she helped to build. With this fund, we’re hoping to make an annual award that will help hundreds of students pursue an education in the performing arts, ensuring Emily’s spirit will go on in the performing arts community of the Chilliwack area.
