Vice President of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: Rachel Bryant
CIIS facilitates radical transformation through unique and dynamic educational experiences in the service of self, society, and Earth. We also commit to living our seven cherished values, and in so doing lay the foundation for a strong and unified community built upon wisdom, trust, and collective spirit.
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.
I felt seen, held, cared for, and educated in a way I have never experienced in my life. I now have tools that were created specifically to uplift my community.
Making Mental Health Therapy Culturally Accessible
With the explosive need for mental health services in the wake of the pandemic, which disproportionately impacted communities of color, California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is seeking $100,000 in donations – which will be matched with a $100,000 gift from the school’s board – to build a pipeline for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) to advance from graduate students to professional mental health clinicians.
CIIS suggests three tiers of donations:
$1,500 – Provides 1 year of professional mentorship.
$5,000 – Secures 1 year of financial support for a therapist-in-training.
$15,000 – Funds 1 year of culturally relevant programs for clinical trainees.
