Dear Branson Alumni,

I am writing to provide you with information regarding the newly established Branson Therapy Support Fund and Intake Service Hotline. These services are available to alumni who are seeking crisis counseling related to their abuse or who require reimbursement for therapy they receive relating to sexual misconduct experienced as students at Branson.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)—the country's leading provider of sexual assault services whose experts take a victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to support those who need its services—is available to assist our alumni in two ways.

First, RAINN is available for immediate crisis counseling for anyone affected by sexual misconduct 24/7/365 through the National Sexual Assault Hotline 800-656-4673 or online at

Second, RAINN will assist alumni who wish to access the Branson Therapy Support Fund. This fund has been established to support alumni who want help paying for current therapy needed because of sexual misconduct they experienced during their time at Branson, whether or not they wish to make a formal report of that misconduct to Covington and Burling, the law firm conducting the investigation.

Alumni who wish to access this fund or learn more about it should call RAINN's Branson-specific line at 855-794-0545. After confirming alumni status and a therapy plan, RAINN will refer callers to a third-party administrator for payment of current therapy bills to maintain confidentiality.

The Branson Therapy Fund Hotline is available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST, excluding federal holidays. Below is a link to Frequently Asked Questions about the Therapy Support Fund. If you have further questions about the Support Fund or need more information, please contact me at
