Jennifer Jenkins Memorial Fund

We have raised $101,554 toward the $100,000 goal to name the Jennifer A. Jenkins Stage!

Help make the Jennifer A. Jenkins Stage a reality!

Jennifer Jenkins, (A.A. 1974, Dekalb College and B.F.A. 1976, UGA) passed away in September of 2021 after fighting a rare form of cancer for seven years. Jennifer was the Fine Arts Production Manager for 38 years at Perimeter College until her retirement in December 2020, and a powerful presence in the professional Atlanta Theatre community. She touched thousands of people in her life, and she was always an advocate for Atlanta theatre.

The family and close friends of Jennifer have established the Jennifer A. Jenkins Memorial Funds. These funds will enable the Fine Arts Department - Theatre Pathway at Perimeter College to provide more opportunities for students, faculty, and the community to enjoy and experience the art of theatre.

To date, two funds have been established raising over $74,000 for students and faculty in theatre arts at Perimeter College. 

Now we are in the final push and need your gifts to name the stage in the Cole Auditorium the Jennifer A. Jenkins Stage! The goal we need to reach is $100K in funds raised!
