Help Keep Ben's Memory Alive
Inspired by his passion for nature and outdoor recreation, and his commitment to using engineering to make the world a better place, Ben's family and friends have created a memorial fund in his honor.
The Fund awards scholarships to environmentally-oriented STEM majors, with a priority given to engineering students. It offers grants for engineering research and entrepreneurship to combat climate change and support environmental conservation. It also supports endeavors to preserve and enhance natural recreation areas and to teach outdoor recreation safety and environmental stewardship.
If you would like to be part of our efforts, you can support the BKMF by donating or by volunteering .
