Donate to the Dawn Hampton Fund

The Frankie Manning Foundation has quickly and generously established the Dawn Hampton Fund to help cover the costs of Dawn's final wishes.

The Dawn Hampton Fund (DHF), administered by the Frankie Manning Foundation (FMF) is intended to cover:

  • Expenses and fees pertaining to Dawn Hampton’s cremation, including related transport and urns.
  • Final utility bills and rent including keeping the apartment in her name for long enough to review and relegate or dispose of contents. The DHF will cover any expenses incurred in this process
  • Fees or legal expenses involved in the closure of her estate, if they should arise.
  • Costs connected to a funeral/celebration event according to Dawn’s wishes. There has been talk of using St. Peters Church, known as the Jazz Church. Details TBD.

If you can, please consider donating today.  The Light is On!
