USM Students Need You More Than Ever

Friends, alumni, faculty, staff, community members, and students: You are playing a huge role in helping out USM's most vulnerable students. 

The current global health crisis is affecting USM students in profound ways. Unforeseen travel expenses, medical expenses, uncertain employment and other financial emergencies are hitting them hard. The USM Student Emergency Fund was set up to support them during difficult times such as these.  

If you're able to help, donations are greatly needed.

We know this situation is affecting all of you too, so first, take care of yourself. Together, we will once again thrive.

If you'd like to make a donation by phone or mail, you can do so:

By calling Vicki LaQuerre at 207-228-8521 

Or sending a check to the USM Foundation at:

P.O. Box 9300

Portland, ME 04104-9300


We're joining forces with USM's graduating class - the Class of 2020 - who are running their own campaign to raise $5,555 for the Student Emergency Fund. The money they've raised is now included in our total. Thank you, students for helping out your fellow Huskies! Class of 2020 students can make a gift below.
