2011 Grant to Bard College

A $15,000 grant will be awarded to Bard College which will be used for initiatives like Let’s Talk where members of the Counseling Center go out to popular campus gathering spaces and hold drop-in sessions for all students; support of the Bard Active Minds chapter, and mental health peer counselors. In addition, funding will be used for upkeep of the Bard Cemetery and cleanup following Hurricane Irene. Bard Cemetery is located on the Bard campus on a wooded hill and is where Jamie and other Bard students, faculty, and staff are buried.
