Aaron Bleich Fund for Creative Writing

Last year the Adelphi Family opened their hearts to create the Aaron Bleich Memorial Fund in honor of a much-loved Creative Writing MFA student who tragically died just as he was completing his MFA degree.

 

In loving memory of Aaron Bleich '17

After a highly successful career in television news, Aaron had enrolled in the Adelphi Creative Writing MFA both because his health had made it impossible to continue his work as a journalist, and because he wanted to pursue different writing possibilities in nonfiction.

 

In honoring Aaron's example, the fund provides a graduate teaching assistant position for a student who has demonstrated unusual courage and perseverance in pursuit of their goals. The quality of the student’s creative work and potential for growth are paramount in the selection process.

 

On Giving Day, Aaron's family will generously match gifts made to the Aaron Bleich Memorial Fund, dollar for dollar, up to $700. 

 

Your gift to the Aaron Bleich Memorial Fund will make an even BIGGER impact on Creative Writing students, thanks to the Bleich family!
