SJSU Student Crisis Support Fund

Join SJSU’s efforts to address the immediate needs of students experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19.  

Your gift to the SJSU Student Crisis Support Fund provides immediate assistance to SJSU students in need due to a crisis or catastrophic event.  

COVID-19 has already disrupted life in the SJSU community significantly—sowing uncertainty in students’ lives by creating unexpected housing and food expenses, restricting travel and potentially stranding them away from home, limiting their income from hourly jobs or work-study positions and creating other unforeseen challenges.  

By helping meet their immediate needs, the Student Crisis Support Fund can give SJSU students the ability to overcome the difficult setbacks COVID-19 poses.    

 

The impact of your gift:

A gift to the Student Crisis Support Fund lets SJSU students know that we have their backs and offers timely financial help that can lead to peace of mind and academic success. The Student Crisis Fund is administered by SJSU staff as a part of the SJSU Cares initiative, which assists students who are facing an unforeseen economic crisis.  

This fund is entirely supported by charitable donations like yours, and any amount helps meet a student’s time-sensitive needs. With your support, we can act quickly to fulfill even more student requests, which are increasing dramatically due to the ramifications of COVID-19. Your support will provide critical resources to students so they can make rent payments on time, cover medical costs if ill, and have the technology resources they need to attend online classes. Reaching our goal of $20,000.00 could help between 20 and 40 students make rent this month!    

Applying to the fund: If you are an SJSU student experiencing a crisis and you need financial help, apply for assistance here.
