Mission image.jpg


The Matthew C. Farrell Memorial Fund is dedicated to upholding the memory and legacy that Matt built within the community throughout his life.  

The Fund's mission is to financially aid graduating Urbana-Champaign students who plan to study the Arts at Parkland College. 

The scholarship was inspired by Matt’s love for Urbana-Champaign and his experiences within the community, including his Art Education at Parkland, which proved to be a pivotal experience for him. 

Matt had a passion for running and strove to live a healthy life.  He brought people together through his interests and will continue to do so for years to come. 

The scholarship will be supported through annual fundraisers including an annual 5K and winter celebration. Online donations are always open and community sponsors are appreciated.
