UC Pandemic Appeal

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to University of Charleston by clicking here!

Like you, all of our students and employees have been negatively impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic. Our campus has closed to all but essential staff. We have transitioned from in-seat to online instruction, from on-campus to remote work, and from close to 700 to less than 60 students in the residence halls.

In true UC (and MHC) fashion, we have been innovative and responsive in helping each student continue to be successful.  We have helped them secure plane and bus tickets to travel home to their families. Students unable to afford them have been provided with notebook computers, webcams, and other necessary distance learning tools. We have purchased new technology systems to enrich online teaching, learning, and remote employee communications. And we continue to stock our free pantry, so students have essential non-perishable food, household, and personal care items.

Many of you have reached out to ask how you can help. If you are able, we hope you will consider making a gift to UC’s Pandemic Appeal to support the University during this challenging time. Your support will help us continue meeting the emergency needs of individual students. And with our economy and family incomes disrupted, we know both returning and new students will be increasingly reliant on scholarships and other forms of financial support. Your gift will make an immediate impact on UC and our students as we navigate these uncharted waters. 

Now that we have successfully concluded the spring semester, our focus is on preparing the University for the safe return of our Golden Eagles to campus as soon as possible. Together, we can bring our students back to Charleston and continue educating each of them for a life of productive work, enlightened living, and community involvement. 

We will make it through this uncertain time together! #WingsUp
