An initiative of Propel Capital, the Mindich and Sirovich families, and Dan’s friends to honor his memory, his love of teaching and his work to create collaborative, joyful networks for teachers that help young people learn.
The Dan Mindich Teacher Project will work together with Vassar College, Dan’s alma mater, and Smith College to inspire a new generation of teachers, building on each institution’s deep expertise in urban education.
The project will support:
Growth of the Smith-led Mindich Fellowship—an intensive apprenticeship experience to expose and engage students in the profession of teaching
Launch of an education prize in Dan’s name at Vassar
Continued innovation and leadership through Vassar and Smith’s urban education programs.
If you are interested in joining to support this work in Dan’s memory, donations can be made to The Dan Mindich Teacher Project Fund. All donations are tax-deductible.
Classmates of Dan and Shilpa’s who wish to give directly to Vassar can also contribute at give.vassar.edu
(please indicate that your gift is for the Dan Mindich Fund).
