Please consider promoting and making a tax-deductible donation to this endowed fund, which will provide scholarships to persons of color seeking graduate degrees in mental health counseling.
This fund is created by Peace of Mind Counseling with the aim to help diversify providers in the mental health field, ensuring there are mental health providers who have similar shared experiences as the clients they serve.
La Crosse’s Black Leaders Acquiring Collective Knowledge (B.L.A.C.K.) is a partner in the effort and will be making the scholarship decisions.
An anonymous donor has offered a $15,000 match to help get the fund built to a level where it can begin disbursing scholarships. The La Crosse Community Foundation kicked off the $15K in 15 Days initiative on Tuesday, August 1st.
