Memorial fund for Skidaway Institute professor grows

An anonymous donor has agreed to match all donations to the Peter G. Verity Memorial Fund for Ocean and Environmental Research up to a total of $10,000.

The fund was created in January of this year by friends and colleagues of the late Peter Verity, a professor at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, who was killed in an accident in late December. The memorial fund is a part of the Skidaway Marine Science Foundation. It is intended that the fund will be used to support work in the areas of Verity’s research interests, including coastal and environmental ecology and marine science education.

The fund currently sits at just over $4,000.

Interested donors may use a credit card to donate on-line at the Skidaway Marine Science Foundation Web site, or send a check to:

Peter G. Verity Memorial Fund

10 Ocean Science Circle

Savannah, GA 31411

The fund is a part of the Skidaway Marine Science Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Donations are tax deductible.

    If you have not checked out Skidaway Today (www.skidawaytoday.com) you should. It is by and for Skidaway Islanders. You could join and spread the word about the Memorial Fund to other Skidaway Islanders.
