GivingTuesday, November 30

On GivingTuesday, November 30, your gift to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund will help students open doors that were shut by unforeseen and extreme financial hardship. You will assist with personal expenses like rent, medical bills, gasoline, groceries and childcare — expenses that may otherwise hinder a student’s progress toward their Roosevelt degree.

To date, generous donors like you have selflessly made $120,000 in gifts — with 100% directly benefiting Roosevelt students. But unfortunately, the need does not go away. In fact, it grows.

Will you help us raise $50,000 on GivingTuesday? Even a small contribution can make a huge difference.
