Thanks to your gift, we have already raised more than $10,000 for the Student Hardship Fund. We wanted to provide a few updates as student needs and Emory’s response to COVID-19 are changing rapidly.
The Student Hardship Fund is facilitated through the Office of Financial Aid. We have been communicating with administrators of the fund and Campus Life leaders to expedite procedures to make it easier and quicker for students to access these funds in this time of urgent need.
Next week, Advancement and Alumni Engagement will send an email to alumni and constituents with an update on what is happening on campus, including links to Emory COVID-19 related resources and information, and a list of ways to help.
To jumpstart this response, and to amplify the message, we are asking you to share why you decided to donate to the Emory Student Hardship Fund and invite your network to get involved. Next week, we will formally invite influencers and early adapters like you to sign-up as Momentum crowdfunding ambassadors with access to additional resources including a digital toolkit with suggested messaging and images. Until then, we encourage you to share via Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and direct message your network.
As members of the Emory community, we’re all in this together. Before we can even begin to measure the toll COVID-19 will take on our lives, you have already stepped in to help.
We are inspired by your immediate act of kindness: to give to those in need.
Your generosity and care are what truly define and unite the Emory community.
