Who is Dick Bakal?

Richard Dick Bakal is a personal friend of Dan and Barbara Garvey; he came to know them and our community of like-minded individuals through a lifelong dedication to experiential learning. After the Garveys arrival in the early 2000s, Dicks connection to the College quickly grew into one of a donor and steadfast supporter. He was the first and one of the larger donors for the Crossroads Center construction, and has been a key supporter of the Kenya Project since its inception. Executive Director of the Bakal Family Estate and the familys Wine Trust, Dick is a prolific philanthropist who has ensured the ongoing maintenance of the Library and Lounge through an endowment and a supervisory agreement with directors of the Compleat Activist Project at the Institute for Sustainable Social Change.
