The spot to give when you want to help students in a time of unexpected need or unforeseen circumstance! 

The Student Emergency Fund provides emergency, last-resort aid to students who have suffered an unforeseen life circumstance.  Whether it be a loss of a parent’s job or a loss of a parent, when financial support such as that is cut-off, students often have no way of continuing their education and completing their degree due to the need of fulfilling financial obligations.  This fund, as well as similar funds like Gary Brown ’71 Emergency Endowment Fund and Class of 1965 Pay it Forward Fund, are administered similarly through the Offices of Financial Aid and Faith and Spirituality and helped 44 students just last year!


Some students' financial obligations are as little as $1,000 to complete their degree and change the trajectory of their entire life! 

Here's how you can help:

1. Give a gift- select a project you are passionate about and donate--help us reach our goal! 

2. Be an advocate- click on the advocate button to help spread the word AND track how many dollars and donors you have generated!

3. Post a short video or photo and share why you have chosen to support #WCGivingTuesday campaign. 

Remember: It doesn't matter how much you can give, whether it's the cost of your next Starbucks coffee or a lunch out of the office, it matters THAT you have given!
