Richmont Receives Record Donation

Richmont Graduate University is honored to have received a grant in the amount of $150,000. This grant, made by an anonymous donor, will be used to support the work of the Richmont Institute of Trauma and Recovery. This record-setting grant is the second largest single gift received by Richmont.

In response to this record gift, Richmont President Dr. Timothy Quinnan commented, “Any University claiming such a title must be able to attract external support in significant amounts. In many respects, grant support is the highest form of peer recognition. Simply put, it says that knowledgable others believe your institution is engaged in work that competitors are unable to match.

The Richmont Institute of Trauma and Recovery is dedicated to providing education, training, and treatment to those impacted by trauma. To learn more about the trauma training and counseling services offered through the Richmont Institute of Trauma and Recovery, visit richmonttrauma.com.
