The Story

All - Together we've accomplished so much for Shawn's family, and we want to continue our mission to support them. As we mentioned in a previous note, the YouCaring site will close on July 31. The good news is that we are transitioning the campaign to GoFundMe at: https://www.gofundme.com/brimleychildren 

The new site will accept donations just like this one has. (And shortly, clicking on this site should redirect you.) You can also click the heart button on the GoFundMe site to receive news and updates. 

Please continue sharing our new link and let's keep up the amazing, wonderful generosity!

Richard and Michèle  


Shawn Brimley was a treasured friend, colleague, husband and father. He passed away on January 9 after a battle with cancer. He is already dearly missed by us all.

Shawn and Marjorie have raised three wonderful children: Claire, age 8; Austin, age 6; and Tommy, age 3. We are all coming together to ensure that the Brimley children have adequate funds for educational and other needs through college. 

Donations to the Brimley Children Educational Fund will be deposited in an account set aside for school and college expenses as well as for other needs as they may arise. Shawn has been an important part of so many of our lives. Please be generous in helping us secure the future education of his children.


Thank you,


Michèle and Richard

All - 

Thank you for your contributions to the Brimley Educational Fund. The amazing response has been testament not only to Shawn's impact on all of our lives, but also the goodness and generosity of each of you.

YouCaring is merging with another company and will take down their donation sites as of July 31. If you, or someone you know, would like to make a contribution to the Fund after that date, the best way to do so is by check.

This can be done by making a check payable to: Chevy Chase Trust FBO in the name of Claire, Austin or Thomas Brimley (there are now three accounts). The address is 7501 Wisconsin Ave, Suite 1500W, Bethesda, MD 20814.

Thank you again for all of your wonderful support for the Brimleys!

All - 

Thank you for your contributions to the Brimley Children Educational Fund and for spreading the word so widely! The total above now captures all donations, including the offline ones. We are closing in on $300k, let's keep pushing there and beyond.

Many of the latest donations are from individuals who didn't know Shawn but have learned of his remarkable life and are moved to help. So please continue to spread the word!

Thank you again,

Michèle and Richard
