Support the essential #BearcatEmergencyFund which students rely on for staying in school! The Baruch Student Emergency Fund provides critical support for students with short-term financial emergencies, keeping them in school and on track for graduation.

The fund acts as a financial buttress in a student's greatest time of need which protects against temporary loss of job, medical bills, homelessness, and urgent food and transportation costs.

Your help is crucial to unlocking a 2 for 1 match from the Petrie Foundation. If we meet our $10,000 fundraising target, the foundation will donate an additional $20,000 to the cause. Thank you for your kindness!


We are pleased to announce that the #BearcatEmergencyFund campaign was a resounding success! Thank you to our 71 donors- alumni, parents, faculty, friends and students- who participated in this vital effort, helping us to surpass our fundraising goal by 6%. Your support was tremendous!

Thanks to you, the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation will help to double your impact (an additional $21,260) towards the Student Emergency Fund for the coming year. Your gifts will help to keep a roof over a student’s head, clothes on a student’s back, textbooks in their bag and keep them on track to graduate. You have literally changed lives and futures!

A special thank you from a Student Emergency Fund recipient:


I would like to thank the donors to the #BearcatEmergencyFund campaign for the impact they have made in my life and the lives of other students in need. I am thankful for each and every person who has supported this campaign, including the Baruch staff, administrators and volunteers who make this important fund possible. This has created a circle of impact and goodwill- I now want to give back and help students just like I’ve been so generously helped.” – 2019 MPA Student

Again, on behalf of all the student emergency fund recipients, we extend a heartfelt thanks. Stay tuned- we look forward to sharing more updates on the impact you’ve helped to create for students in need!

Best wishes for 2018!!

Thank you to our amazing alumni, students, parents, faculty and friends who have supported the #BearcatEmergencyFund campaign! With just five days left, we are now over 92% of the way toward our goal

Here's just one way that the Baruch Student Emergency Fund is changing lives:

“When the weight of my mom’s illness became too much to bear, and the rent and legal fees kept stacking up, I began to feel hopeless… This grant is the light at the end of the tunnel, helping students get out of very difficult situations… Not only does the Emergency Fund help individual students, it directly impacts their immediate families as well. Creating this foundation of support now, will multiply its effects down the road.” – 2019 Accounting Major

Thank you for changing the lives of Bearcats like the student above. We’re almost there, so please help spread the word!  Bearcats are inspired by each other, and the more you share, the greater the impact you will have. THANK YOU!
