The COVID-19 Better Together Fund

This campaign ended on July 02, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Jefferson by clicking here!

Over the past three months we have proven once again that we are better together. When we kicked off our COVID-19 Better Together Fund to help employees and students facing financial hardships due to the pandemic, we had no idea the kind of generosity we would experience. Now, as we officially close the fund, we are pleased to report that kind donors from across the country—44 states to be exact—helped us raise more than $7 million to ease the burden for over 3,600 members of our Jefferson family. 

Although the fund is closed, we encourage you to continue to stand with us as philanthropic partners. If you wish to continue supporting our employees and students in need, please consider a gift to the Better Together Fund or JeffSECURE here.
We are still better together.
