About PEACE OUTside Campus, The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation
The Foundation is dedicated to promoting peaceful and safe living environments in off-campus college communities nationwide.
The seeds of PEACE OUTside Campus, The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation were planted in the violent attack and murder of its namesake in 2005. Lindsey’s family and friends vowed to take whatever steps necessary to prevent a similar tragedy from happening to other families and began the foundation in her honor. Since its inception, PEACE OUTside Campus has advocated for student safety and shared its message of positive empowerment with countless young people. Our success in reducing the risk of violent crime is measured by the attacks that never occur, headlines that never appear, and the families who have no cause to grieve.
