Answering the call of Pro Humanitate

Wake Foresters across the globe are answering the call to do what they can, where they can, to join the fight against the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We could not be more proud of their response.

Keeping our community safe and protecting the integrity of our students’ education remain our priorities. To do that, we have aggressively cut costs where we can. For example, we are implementing a hiring freeze and delaying progress on all capital projects. Ultimately, we are searching for every way we can preserve our greatest asset: the people who make us who we are.

We are grateful that so many of you have reached out to find out how you can help members of the Wake Forest family during this time of crisis. We have established an umbrella fund to facilitate this generous spirit. Unlike many endowed or current use funds, the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund is set up specifically to provide maximum flexibility in both providing support to those who need it most, and providing the most efficient means of contribution for those who want to help.

Our initial goal is to raise $500,000 for this urgent need. Dr. and Mrs. Hatch are dedicated to helping our community and have made a gift of $100,000 to aid our collective effort. We hope you will consider joining them in supporting fellow Wake Foresters in need.
