The Family and friends of David Gimelfarb have established the Rescue Resource Fund in support of agencies involved in a search and rescue operation currently underway in Costa Rica. David, a doctoral student at the Adler School of Professional Psychology, went missing last week while vacationing in the northern part of Costa Rica. David was traveling independently while on vacation. He was last seen entering the Rincon de Veija National Park in Guanecaste at around 10:00 AM on Tuesday, August 11th.

The Gimelfarb Family expresses its gratitude for the outpouring of support and messages they have received from so many. The creation of the Rescue Resource Fund is a testament to that support, and its creation was prompted by numerous inquiries received by David's family asking how best to contribute to his safe return.

For up to date information the family has established a Facebook page, "help find David Gimelfarb."

One hundred percent of gift contributions will benefit the rescue agencies in Coast Rica. Due to IRS regulations, gifts are not tax deductible. Checks payable to the Adler School Rescue Research Fund may be mailed to:
The Adler School of Professional Psychology
Attn: Rescue Resource Fund
65 E. Wacker Place, Suite 2100
Chicago, Illinois 60601

Gifts may also be made online at Please include "Rescue Resource Fund" in the additional information section of the form.

* The Adler School Rescue Resource Fund is a pass through account administered by the Adler School of Professional Psychology on behalf of the Gimelfarb Family. The Adler School is serving as an intermediary until such time that all funds are disbursed to those special search and rescue agencies as directed by the family.
