UMD Student Crisis Fund
With the continued COVID-19 pandemic, Maryland students have been hard hit by campus disruptions and need help with getting food, housing and basic day-to-day necessities. Right now, the best option to quickly respond to students in need of financial assistance is the UMD Student Crisis Fund. Since March of 2020, more than $1.8 million has been distributed to over 3,500 students representing every college and school. Unfortunately, the fund is depleted after each day of emergency assistance and requires constant replenishing.
UMD Campus Food Pantry
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and reduced operations on campus, many members of the Maryland community are facing food insecurity. We're all in this together—and together, we can make a difference. A gift to the UMD Campus Food Pantry will help alleviate food insecurity and food hardship among College Park students, faculty and staff during this crisis.
Keep Me Maryland
Your gift to Keep Me Maryland provides emergency aid to students in circumstances so dire that they're at risk of withdrawing from Maryland. Gifts will help students who are facing a parent's job layoff or illness, or who are simply struggling independently to pay utility bills, and buy books and food.
