Drake University Student Emergency Fund

Drake University Student Emergency Fund

Drake has established the Student Emergency Fund to provide emergency financial assistance to Drake students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gifts made to this fund will help students facing unforeseen and urgent financial needs as a result of the pandemic crisisOne hundred percent of all donations will be allocated directly to the Drake students most impacted. Students in need of assistance will work with Dean of Students, Jerry Parker.

What we do in this moment will ensure students facing difficult circumstances will not be left with difficult choices. Gifts to the fund provide a path forward where there otherwise may have been an insurmountable roadblock. 

Drake graduates are the people our world will need as we face a changed landscape during and after this crisis. These Bulldogs are instilled with the values, knowledge, and experiences that empower transformed lives and strengthened communities. Your support of the Student Emergency Fund equips students to rise above this tipping point and achieve their full potential.  

Support from donors has always been an integral part of Drake’s success. In this moment, as you also may be facing challenging circumstances, we are grateful for your continued generosity and commitment to Drake’s mission.
