Thank you! We did it!

September 18, 2020

With just a few hours left in our campaign, we have already surpassed our goal! Thanks to your generosity, we've raised over $5,000 and counting for the Student Emergency Fund, unlocking the $5,000 match from The Parents Fund at Montclair State!


On behalf of the students who will benefit from your generosity, thank you for your supportDidn't make your gift yet? There is still time! Make your gift today to ensure our students can focus on their studies this academic year. 

We are so close!

Thank you to those of you who have already supported this campaign. We are less than $2,000 shy of hitting our goal! There are still many students in jeopardy of not graduating and our students are still impacted. People continue to lose their jobs due to the pandemic.


The Student Emergency Fund helps our students pay their holds, bills and tuition so they can continue their studies, register for the next semester or graduate. Essentially, it helps them continue to be students here or become alumni of our university. It helps them to focus on other things besides worrying about paying their bills - they can focus on their studies, meeting basic needs, supporting their families and more.


To date, we've helped over a dozen students and counting. A little bit goes a long way; your gift of any size adds up!


If you've already given, thank you again, and please continue to share the campaign.

Halfway there!

September 03, 2020

Thanks to you, we are halfway to our goal of $5,000, just before the halfway mark of the campaign! We have just over two weeks left to hit our goal in order to receive the dollar for dollar match from The Parents Fund, doubling our impact!


Regardless of how this semester and academic year look, students need our help. Many still struggle to meet basic needs like housing, food, etc. Do not let their bills and tuition be another thing for them to worry about! 

Thank you!

Funds raised since the crisis began have already helped over a dozen students at Montclair State. From paying bills so students can register for classes or graduate, to having access to funds to ensure their families are supported, the Student Emergency Fund helps our Red Hawks continue to be students during an uncertain time.

Choose a giving level


Help students continue

No gift is too small - your gift will go towards paying off a bill or hold on a student's account caused by the financial impact of health crisis


Help students graduate

Help a student cross that finish line! Many students need our support to pay their final bills in order to graduate due to financial stress caused by the pandemic


Help students in need

Your gift will help support students' basic needs as they return to their studies this semester. Many of our students are still feeling the financial impact of COVID-19
