UMD Student Crisis Fund
The UMD Student Crisis fund is driven by generous donors and provides financial support when a verified crisis has negatively impacted a student's health, safety, well-being, and their ability to continue their education. It is the best option to quickly respond to students in need of financial assistance. Since March of 2020, more than $2.1 million has been distributed to over 4,000 students representing every college and school. Unfortunately, the fund is depleted after each round of emergency assistance and requires constant replenishing.
UMD Campus Food Pantry
Members of our Maryland community are facing food insecurity. We're all in this together—and together, we can make a difference. A gift to the UMD Campus Food Pantry will help alleviate food insecurity and food hardship among College Park students, faculty and staff.
Keep Me Maryland
Your gift to Keep Me Maryland provides emergency aid to students in circumstances so dire that they're at risk of withdrawing from Maryland. Gifts will help students who are facing a parent's work hardship or illness, or who are simply struggling independently to pay utility bills, and buy books and food.
