How You Can Support
Support from the broader Exeter community at a time when the academy is (to put it bluntly) not being supportive has a deep psychological impact on survivors. Simply experiencing this outpouring of acknowledgment from our community is, in and of itself, enormous. For many, simply seeing this fund launch, and seeing the enthusiasm with which it has been met, is a giant step forward in healing.
The funds are also significant to many. Most survivors struggle with the costs of ongoing therapy. Some survivors are in crisis. Some struggle with homelessness. Some are not able to work. Above all, survivors often struggle to be believed and to see reflected back to them, that what happened to them was real and matters.
It is PATH’s greatest hope to work with Exeter, join forces with its leadership, and build a successful pathway to healing and reconciliation that returns lost dignity and self-worth to survivors, brings healing to our community, and encourages the needed leadership for Exeter to forge the path in addressing sexual harm effectively and head-on. Meanwhile, there is work to be done. And the fund has been created to start doing it.
Our Fund is not yet ready to receive donations, it still in the process of finalizing with the financial institution we are using. When it is up and ready, your donation of $25.00 or more will be an investment not just in an alumnus harmed, but in our community at Exeter as a whole.
PATH always welcomes new members.
