Extraordinary musician, son, brother, friend. Justin Veatch tragically died in his sleep as a result of an accidental drug overdose at age 17, in September 2008. Justin was incredibly gifted as a singer, songwriter and musician having dedicated his future to music several years before his death.
The Justin Veatch Fund recognizes the teaching of music and art as a critical component of a child’s education. The mission of The Fund is to support emerging, college-bound artists with opportunities to discover new skills and to refine existing talent.
The Fund’s signature program, The Justin Veatch Music Scholarship, is a way for Justin’s family to help finance budding artists with an education leading to a career in music.
As part of our fundraising we have released two of Justin’s songs, “ESRT Page 14” and “Whispering Spirits” as single downloads on iTunes and other online retailers. We are also selling Justin Veatch Fund t-shirts, sweatshirts and have released a full-length CD through Polyvinyl Records, “Permagrin: The Music of Justin Veatch by The Ivoryton Piano Factory and Friends,” We are thankful that this album was made possible through the international efforts of some very special artists and friends.
We are also accepting tax deductable contributions through our “donate” page on this website or by mail to The Justin Veatch Fund, PO Box 1323, Yorktown Heights, NY 10598. DONATE
