Cheryl Lynn Gajadhar was not only a disabled military veteran who continued her service through the Veterans Administration Hospitals as a vendor for blinded veterans like her, she was also a dedicated supporter of the Arts. So much, in fact, that she was the first inductee in the Hall of Honors at the Freedom Festival International Film Festival for the Veteran of Freedom Award. Her contributions to Carolina Film Network are the reasons why this organization exists as an accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. On the early morning of December 19, 2020, Cheryl gave her last breath serving her community and supporting this organization due to COVID-19. In her honor, as she would want her legacy to continue, we at CFN dedicate this film grant to her, where active CFNS members in good standing can have a chance to let her spirit live on through their work. Starting off in 2021, the initial fund of $2,000 was directly being contributed from Cheryl herself and opened for applications March 1st and closed April 30th. The details and restrictions of this grant are announced on the opening date of applications.
