If you are interested in a tribute beyond flowers or a charity donation to honor a loved one, you might consider a donation to our scholarship fund. If you are considering a donation as an annual remembrance of a special person, perhaps someone who loved the arts, or created their own art, an award in their name is available.
In addtion to affording our local Aiken artist-members various venues for showcasing and selling the fruits of their talents, the Aiken Artist Guild provides, through its various show events and fundraisers, scholarships for USC-Aiken fine art majors entering their senior year and honoring past and present members of the guild who have made great contributions to the Aiken Artist Guild.

- Ed Warner - $1000 - Mabry MacGregor
