The Kevin Gray Memorial Foundation is dedicated to honoring the career and passion that Kevin Gray had for musical theater by raising awareness and supporting two collegiate educational scholarships established in his name. The designated scholarships are “The Kevin Gray Musical Theater Award Endowment Fund” at Duke University and “The Kevin Gray Memorial Scholarship Award” at the Hartt School, University of Hartford.
Kevin’s dreams, hopes and accomplishments embodied a spirit of generosity that lifted and touched so many people. An individual of true conviction mixed with an immense sense of responsibility, raw emotion and incredible talent, Kevin lived a life that allowed him to remain true to himself, and all those whom he met and cared so much about along his way. With all of our help, we have been able to establish a way by which Kevin’s commitment to excellence in musical theatrical performing and education can continue on in perpetuity.
Please join us in celebrating Kevin’s memory by supporting the two endowment funds that have recently been established in his name. “The Kevin Gray Musical Theater Award Endowment Fund” at Duke University and “The Kevin Gray Memorial Scholarship Award” for The Hartt School at the University of Hartford have been created to provide financial support to promising students as they pursue training in musical theater. Any level of contributing will graciously help all of us guarantee that this type of educational experience is made available to students who choose to follow in Kevin’s footsteps as they attend one of these two institutions for which Kevin had such great passion.
