Welcome to a New Academic Year at NPI! 

Dear Members, Faculty, Candidates, Friends & Supporters of NPI:

It’s time for our annual Sandy Russell Memorial Fund Drive. Sandy Russell was a senior candidate at NPI and an important part of our community, till her untimely death in 1993. We therefore created an annual fund to honor her memory and to help NPI. Each year the money raised goes to fund a different project selected by the NPI Board.

This year the Board decided that the Institute’s priority is to fund diversity and inclusivity events, including diversity scholarships for our events and programs. This will enrich both NPI and our community.

We are therefore asking for your support. Your gift is tax-deductible and will benefit NPI and psychoanalysis for years to come.

We thank you in advance for your continued support!
