The family of post-baccalaureate fellow Zachary Paluch ’13 has started collecting donations through Giveforward, a website where people can create fundraisers, many of them related to medical reasons.

The site lists their goal as $50,000. As of Tuesday, 25 donations have already come in. It appears that some Knox students have been contributing to the fund. Donations may be made here.

According to the donation page, the injuries that Paluch received include a traumatic brain injury, a broken nose and a fractured orbital, or eye socket, on the right side of his face.

The page also adds to the initial report released by Director of Campus Safety John Schlaf. That report indicated that Paluch did not have identification on his person at the time that he was found early Monday, Sept. 16.

The incident is still under investigation by the Galesburg Police Department. Anyone who may have more information regarding or related to the matter is encouraged to contact them at (309) 343-9151.
