Fall 2020 looks a lot different from what we had imagined when initially planning a 40 for Forty campaign in January 2020. Like you, we are all adjusting to the changes the pandemic has brought on. Our first priority has always been students. This means for this year’s campaign we will direct all of our support to the Student Emergency Fund that plays a vital role as the primary resource for students impacted by COVID-19.
The Student Emergency Fund provides limited financial support to enrolled students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship. These expenses include utilities, medication/prescription expenses, books or school related expenses, safety-related needs, and replacement of belonging lost in a fire or natural disaster.
