COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Blugolds

$105,975 given by 625 members of the Blugold community to support students and programs affected by the COVID-19 crisis 

COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Blugolds

We'll get through this together. 

The Coronavirus crisis presents a challenge unlike anything UW-Eau Claire has faced before.

COVID-19 is impacting our students, and not just because of disrupted classes...

Many of our students work one or more jobs that no longer exist because of closures on campus and in the community. This is devastating their incomes at a time when their families are facing financing challenges as well. 

Every day we are hearing from families who are not sure how they will keep their student in school. We are hearing from students who can't go home because one of their family members is vulnerable to the virus, and they aren't sure how they will continue to pay for housing and groceries.

As of May 6, 2020, the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund provided more than $120,000 for 300+ students who needed immediate help with rent payments, affording technology to complete their classes virtually, and more.

We are a Blugold family made stronger by supporters like you – thank you for your consideration!
