The Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation was named for Alex Townsend, a highly creative and impactful young man who passed away at the age of 21.  A passionate artist and musician, Alex was studying graphic design at the Savannah College of Art and Design at the time of his death.

Growing up, like many creative children, Alex sometimes struggled to fit into a traditional school and social setting.  But he always had music and art as a place to go, to become engaged, and to express himself.  As he grew older, he discovered and connected with many other teens and young adults who shared both his struggles and his passions.

He was known for constantly encouraging and inspiring those around him to use their art to reach their creative potential.  With unbridled energy and soaring spirit, Alex lived life to its fullest, always believing in his art and the power of the imagination.
