All gifts allocated to the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund directly
support students, faculty, and staff members affected by the novel
coronavirus (COVID-19). With your help, our Wake Forest family
members are receiving assistance with housing, meals, family care,
and basic necessities stemming from sheltering in place and the
temporary closing of campus.
Answering the call of Pro Humanitate
On March 28, Nathan and Julie Hatch established the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund with a $100,000 gift to help students, employees and contract personnel facing personal financial hardship. Faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends have rallied to the cause. To date, the Crisis Response Fund has paid out more than $430,000 to meet the needs of our community.
Thanks to the generosity of so many faculty, staff, students, alumni and parents, Wake Foresters are receiving help with housing, meals, family care and other basic necessities stemming from the temporary closing of campus and the unstable economy. But the need is great and continues to grow. We anticipate needing to extend an unprecedented amount of emergency financial aid in the coming months.
With your help, we seek to raise at least $1 million to help those in our University community who need it most.
Please answer the call of Pro Humanitate and join us today.
