Scholarship Fund News, Podcasts and Ukes Online!


On Monday, August 31st, in Port Townsend, 1 mad dog and 3 English people will take part in a relay triathlon to raise funds for the Centrum Scholarship Fund.

Thanks to your generous support we have already passed $10,000 and are well on our way to our goal of $50,000 for the Centrum Scholarships Fund.

Don’t stop now!

Claire will cycle 26 miles Ingrid will run 6 miles Martin with paddle 6 miles on his S.U.P.

Kit, our support crew, will oversee the passing of the baton – or wine bottle donated by our generous sponsor, Sailor Vineyard, in this case – and Bowen will support Ingrid by running alongside her, woofing out the miles on the Larry Scott Trail.

We are raising awareness of the much needed Centrum Scholarship Fund which offers life-changing arts experiences for participants from a broad spectrum of our community, region, nation, and world. We encourage you to donate what you can – every little bit helps and all donations are matched for the duration of the Campaign so please don’t miss this opportunity to double your impact!

Now more than ever, at a time when the arts might be perceived as an extra, we need your help. For many, music and the arts are vital to their mental health and wellbeing and in these times of upheaval and chaos, creative outlets are more essential than ever. In fact, in the words of Elizabeth Alexander, Mellon Foundation President, “artists are the essential workers for the soul”.

Thanks for your generosity in helping us restore the creativity in our community!


Needless to say, Port Townsend Ukefest will be held online this year.  The good news is that registration numbers are unlimited in this virtual format.  Click on the link for registration details and hope to see you there!
