Help us raise funds for our Richard Beards Education Fund with our 2021 Puzzle Fundraiser. Each time we receive a donation for the scholarship, more pieces of the jigsaw puzzle will come together until we've completed this beautiful historic watercolor painting of Downtown Oxford from 1907! So, please make a donation and help us connect all of the pieces! Our goal is to raise $1,000.

The Richard Beards Education Fund is for graduating OAHS seniors furthering their education in the arts and music. The scholarships are awarded to seniors pursuing further education in the Arts (music, performance, architecture, and fine arts).


Dr. Richard Beards was a founding member of the Oxford Arts Alliance, established in 2008. The Oxford Arts Alliance Board of Directors has renamed these scholarships to The Richard Beards Scholarship, continuing Richard’s legacy of education.

We will not sell, share or trade our donors' names or personal information with any other entity
