UNH says $162,000 donor focuses on male sex assault victims
Previously the largest amount received by the organization was about $1,000.
Amy Culp, SHARPP’s interim director and direct services coordinator, acknowledged that male victims traditionally receive less support despite the fact that one in seven men have been victims of sexual assault.
“SHARPP has a long history of being considered a model crisis center on a college campus. Many colleges and universities still consult with us when they are starting up,” Culp said.
The writer also said SHARPP’s existing work within the community has been very impressive.
The announcement of the donation comes as President Obama summoned his cabinet Wednesday to review his administration’s efforts to combat sexual assault, with plans to order a new task force focused on sexual assault on college campuses.
