EMU Student Emergency Fund 2019
An April 2019 Hope Center survey of 86,000 college students across the United States reported that 45% of respondents were food insecure in the last 30 days, 56% were housing insecure in the previous year, and 17% were homeless in the previous year. Students who are already struggling just to get by are extremely unlikely to be able to afford an unexpected emergency expense. Sudden unemployment, a car accident, or an unexpected personal crisis can financially deplete a student and prevent them from finishing school. You can help prevent this at Eastern Michigan University by contributing to the Student Emergency Fund.
The Eastern Michigan University Student Emergency Fund aims to change the course of students’ college careers by providing financial support for emergency expenses when they need it most. A student facing an eligible emergency expense such as a grocery bill, rent, a car repair, or a medical bill can apply to the fund to receive one-time monetary assistance that does not need to be repaid. Your gift makes money available to put in the hands of students in crisis.
Student Government will match every gift received up to our $15,000 goal. Please take this opportunity to double your impact and help us give attention to student’s #1 priority: basic financial security.
Thank you for helping us make a difference in students lives!
