The Brian Weiland Instrumental Music Camp Endowment Fund was created by the family of Brian Weiland in 1999 to honor his life.

Brian was born in Mason City Iowa in 1973. He was an active participant in the outstanding music program offered in the Mason City Iowa School System through his playing of the saxophone.

He also demonstrated a talent for drawing and cartooning. His love of sports included basketball, biking and swimming.

In November 1983, Brian lost his life while playing ice hockey with friends on the river behind his home. Shortly thereafter, Jerry and Sharon Weiland established a trust fund to perpetuate the memory of their beloved son.

The trust provides scholarships to high school students in the Mason City Iowa Community School District who have demonstrated a talent and interest in the field of music.

The fund created within the Community Foundation provides annual distributions in Brian`s name for the ongoing support of these highly prized scholarship awards.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
