Jerry Foote Scholarship Fund

The Nevada County Concert Band (NCCB) announced the establishment of the Jerry Foote Scholarship Fund in 2013.  An oboe and English horn player, Jerry was an active member of the Nevada County Concert Band.  Jerry split his time between band and orchestra music, trains (especially donating time at the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum), and the outdoors (including kayaking).  Jerry passed away in January 2013.

Donations from the public are used to maintain the fund, and the Nevada County Concert Band dedicates a portion of each concert’s donations to it as well.  Donations identified for the Foote Scholarship can be made at the following address:
