Help Students in Need

In light of the recent changes due to COVID-19, applications to the UMD Student Crisis Fund have dramatically increased. The Student Crisis Fund helps any currently enrolled student who faces an unanticipated emergency that requires immediate financial need. 

Nearly all of the new requests are the result of students or parents encountering financial hardships due to work disruptions. Thanks to the generosity of UMD alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends, since March 2020, the Crisis Fund has assisted more than 2,500 students.

Your Giving Tuesday gift to the Student Crisis Fund will help provide emergency resources to students in need. Many more requests are expected and raising funds for this global, quick response program is essential.  Thank you, in advance, for your generosity.


Gifts in support of the University of Maryland are accepted and managed by the University of Maryland College Park Foundation, Inc., an affiliated 501(c)(3) organization authorized by the Board of Regents.   Contributions to the University of Maryland are tax deductible as allowed by law.   Please see your tax advisor for details.
