Macalester Student Relief Fund

This campaign ends on June 1 at 12:59AM EDT

COVID-19 has created an unprecedented public health situation around the world. For the health and safety of our global and local Mac community, we’ve closed campus and will move to distance learning for the remainder of the semester. This has led to unexpected expenses for student support including, but not limited to: 

  • Student transportation away from campus, including helping international students who are able to return home
  • Arrangements to help students who are studying abroad return to the US
  • Emergency food for students through Open Pantry
  • Distance learning materials and fees associated with curricular adaptations
  • Support for lost student employment wages

We don’t yet know the full scope of our student, faculty and staff needs in the coming days and weeks ahead, but we do know your financial support is needed now more than ever. This is a challenging time, but what continues to inspire us is the desire among the Macalester community to help in any way they can. Thank you.
