In an effort to support our survivors, Cate School has established a therapy fund to assist alumni and former students desiring reimbursement for therapy related to sexual abuse during their time at Cate. We have engaged RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, to operate the dedicated Cate School Therapy Fund Hotline, and provide confidential support and information on how to access the fund.
The funds will be distributed through an independent, third-party claims administrator, and neither RAINN nor the claims administrator will provide the School or the Board with any personally identifying information about those who call the hotline, or who access the fund. Additionally, alumni and former students who were harmed by adults while at Cate can access these services but are not required to participate in the School’s investigation.
Alumni can access the fund by calling the Cate-specific toll-free hotline, operated by RAINN, at 1-833-647-2283, or for international callers at 1-805-232-7552. Cate will not be given access to callers’ therapy treatment records or other confidential information. No personally identifiable information, including the name of the caller, will be provided to the School or the Board.
