Giving Initiatives

In the classroom. On the playing field. Out in the community and the workplace. Gifts of any size have a lasting impact on Roosevelt students, wherever their education takes them. You can help support student success today through one of Roosevelt’s mission-driven funds.

Black Student Equity Fund

Created in honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the many other Black lives lost to police violence, the Black Student Equity Fund will support the success of Black students and promote equity in higher education attainment. Gifts to the fund will advance Black student initiatives through scholarships, programming and campus events.

Student Emergency Assistance Fund

The fund provides emergency grants to students with temporary financial difficulties. Eligible students can receive up to $500 to cover immediate, essential expenses, such as:

  • Rent, food and utilities
  • Emergency medical costs
  • Remote-learning technology and internet access
  • School supplies, online subscriptions and more

Stronger Tuition Grant

In times of crisis, the new Stronger Tuition Grant awards students one-time tuition grants of up to $5,000. Contributions to the tuition grant fund will close the financial aid gap so students can continue their transformative Roosevelt education.

Annual Fund for Student Success
