The Emergency Response Fund

The Emergency Response Fund was created to provide alumni, parents and friends an opportunity to support the most vulnerable members of our community during this unprecedented time.

The Emergency Response Fund is the best way to give for those who want to ensure that the college is able to provide for our students, faculty and staff. The fund will provide much needed resources for increased needs for financial aid; unanticipated student travel, technology or storage costs; continuation of wages for affected employees; and other expenses related to Dickinson’s response to COVID-19.

To spur alumni donations to the Emergency Response Fund, Hannah Fabiszewski '17 and Fiona Farrell '18 will be taking their @CashForCovid effort to Dickinson's Instagram and Facebook accounts on the Day of Giving. Every 200 gifts made to the Emergency Response Fund will unlock a new video from the duo, who have been completing challenges while self-isolating to raise funds for COVID-19 relief since mid-March. Check back on Tuesday to see what they'll do to help Dickinson students and families impacted by the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Thanks To Our Recent Donors!

Description

Your gift to the Emergency Response Fund helps Dickinson to care for the community during this crisis and its aftermath. We are deeply grateful to you for offering assistance and encouragement to students in critical need of your support.

Donations are applied to...

In even the best of times, we have a non-negotiable duty to care for our students' health and safety. That duty intensifies in times of danger and uncertainty, and the means through which we must fulfill it similarly expands.

In recent weeks, the college has incurred costs to bring home students who were studying overseas and to quarantine in hotels some students who could not safely return to their homes. We quickly provided appropriate technology and support to faculty and students to accommodate successful transition to remote learning. Finally, as families endure pandemic-related job losses and significant changes in their financial security, we anticipate a sharp increase in the need for scholarship support when students return to campus in the fall.
