Double your impact! Let's meet the match!

GameAbove, a group of dedicated Eastern alumni with a mission to advance the University, has made a significant investment in the well-being and success of students by creating the Students Matter Most Initiative, which launched in January 2020. Through this initiative, the Student Emergency Fund received a substantial boost with the first round of gifts from GameAbove. The fund now stands to receive additional funding through a $50,000 match that this group of passionate alumni is offering in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Student Emergency Fund will play a pivotal support role for students who are adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Your gift will have an immediate and direct impact on students facing challenging circumstances as we all work together to overcome the current crisis. During the coming months, it is imperative that we help ensure the safety and well being of EMU students by providing resources. 

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.
