As our semester comes to a close at UW-Eau Claire, I am grateful to reach out to you one last time to thank you for your support of the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.
Because of you, more than 300 students have received emergency financial support.
Because of you, $120,000 has helped students pay rent, buy groceries, and afford the technology they need to participate in their virtual classes.
I also wanted to let you know that the university recently received a federal CARES Act grant to provide emergency assistance for students. Your generosity provided a lifeline for so many students who could not wait for these grant funds to arrive.
I've never been so proud of our Blugold family as I am now. Thank you again for being there for our students during this unprecedented time of need.
President, UW-Eau Claire Foundation
P.S. Remaining funds in the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will be used to help students who do not qualify for assistance from the CARES Act grant, which requires specific eligibility to receive federal financial aid.
