On February 16th, we surprised dad during the APMF Board Meeting on Zoom and presented to him the scholarship in his name. We raised over $12,000! Check out his (blurry) reaction.

Thank you all for donating and supporting this effort, it means so much to our family.

We'll be keeping this site up through the end of March in case any additional donations roll in.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

More Info

Tom Gilmour is retiring at the end of January!  As a way to honor his career and impact on the community, his family has worked with the Asbury Park Music Foundation to set up the Tom Gilmour Music Saved My Life Scholarship.  The Asbury Park Music Foundation offers life-changing music programs providing under-served youth with confidence, discipline, and relationships that improve their future success and economic mobility.   The yearly Tom Gilmour Scholarship will provide one child a year's worth of music education through the APMF.  

Our father has always been very devoted to the City of Asbury Park and was instrumental in the formation of the Asbury Park Music Foundation and the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival. We are very excited about this initiative and proud of our dad's impact in the cities of Asbury Park and Trenton, but we need your help!  The cost of the Tom Gilmour Scholarship to the APMF will be $3,000 yearly, so we are reaching out to our dad's friends and family to help fund the initial years.  The APMF has had an especially difficult 2020 with COVID-19 forcing the cancellation of many of the organization's fundraising efforts.  Will you help us honor his hard work and cement his legacy in Asbury Park?  Any amount will help!

Update #3

Dad officially retired on January 29th, but predictably he's planning on working through February. Thankfully, snow kept him home on his first week of retirement.

Given the overwhelming success of this donation campaign, our family is going to present him the scholarship a month early on February 16th during the APMF board meeting. Thanks everyone for making this effort a huge success!

We've got a week to go before the presentation and we are so close to $10,000. Unbelievable! We'll keep accepting donations until next week - any additional donations will help sustain the scholarship for future years..
