History of the fund:

On March 28, 2008 Gabriel Gifford Scheller died by suicide. Gabe was a compassionate person who cared deeply about social justice. Gabe's family and friends came together in the fall of 2016 to establish the Black Friday College Fund to honor Gabe's memory and spirit. The board members had a soft launch of the organization in November of 2016 and had the official launch of the organization in March of 2017.

The Black Friday College Fund will award their first scholarship in the summer of 2017.


OUR MISSION

The Black Friday College Fund is dedicated to improving access to colleges and universities for students of color from economically challenged backgrounds by providing financial assistance for tuition. Additionally, the Black Friday College Fund is committed to promoting the wellness of scholars by providing financial assistance for wrap-around support services.


OUR GOALS

  • To increase access to higher education for students of color.
  • To provide continued assistance to students of color once they enter tertiary education by providing funds to use on support services
  • To raise awareness of the emotional and psychological strain caused to students of color coming from economically distressed families and neighborhoods
  • To raise awareness of the importance of wrap-around support services for students of color in college/universities, including mental health services.

Basment Sessions Vol. 3 & 4 Presale

Capacitor Records has announced the long awaited and much 
anticipated Basment Sessions Vol. 3 & 4.  Coming April 1st... 
this ain't no April Fools joke!
 
The Seattle based collective released it’s debut “Volumes 1&2” 
in 2013, and is following up with their second release to include 
13 new tracks.  Conceived in West Seattle, Basment Sessions 
are devoted to "making music, eating barbecue, and fine, fine 
tequila”.  Johnny G, the mastermind behind the Basment 
Sessions, has revealed that the new album will follow in the same 
footsteps.  Some of the artists included in this release include 
Matt Pike (High on Fire, Sleep), Bubba Dupree(Void), 
Jack Endino (Skinyard, Kandi Coded), Chris Johnsen(Zeke) and 
Dan Matthews(The Black Clouds), among many others.  All songs 
are written on the spot by whomever is present, and are completed 
in a single day. They come together cohesively in their hard-rock 
edge, but vary greatly in style. The tracks are built continuously 
around Johnny's hard hitting drumming, and include legendary 
Seattle hard rock, punk and folk talents while crushing through 
all 13 tracks.
 
Basment Sessions Volumes 3&4 will be released on April 1st at 
Substation in Seattle, playing alongside The Derelicts, The Black 
Clouds, and the Stuntmen.  Click here for advance tickets.
 
The album is being released on translucent green vinyl and CD 
via the
Capacitor Records website as well as digitally through all 
major vendors.
