You along with more than 700 generous donors have raised an astonishing $260,000 for the Emergency Student Assistance Fund so far. Thank you!
With little warning, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives. The Men of Morehouse have moved off campus and are now completing this semester using remote learning. For many of our students, these unprecedented actions created not only a whirlwind of emotions and stress, but also very real financial hardships.
The Division of Student Services has received more than 190 student requests for financial assistance to date, and thanks to your generous support has the funds necessary to help our students.
So far, approximately 85 percent of requests have been related to housing and food insecurity, with 15 percent for transportation and technology support. Thanks to you, these Morehouse students have safe places to stay, adequate meals, technology needed for remote learning, and transportation home to be with their loved ones. Requests are still being received and staff are working diligently to meet each student's unique needs.
During this time of uncertainty, we can sometimes feel overwhelmed and anxious about what lies ahead. However, the Morehouse community has demonstrated that in times of crisis, we stand together in brotherhood—providing hope and support to the young men we serve.
Please know that you are very sincerely appreciated and that together we will emerge stronger than before.
Vice President of the Office of Institutional Advancement
