Eric Hammer Memorial Funds

Since his tragic passing on January 28, 2019, Dr. Eric Hammer’s past students and friends have asked how they might honor his immense legacy at Pacific. Through a generous gift from his family, Pacific has announced two ways for those who loved Dr. Hammer to honor him and help sustain his two professional loves at the Conservatory of Music: music education and the Conservatory’s thriving band program. 

The Hammer Family Memorial Scholarship honors the Hammer family’s long history with University of the Pacific. This new endowed fund provides scholarship support for students pursuing a degree in Music Education at Pacific. The Eric Hammer Memorial Band Fund provides annual support to the Conservatory of Music’s band program.
