As the COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve, we are reminded of the importance of community and of staying connected. Amidst all the uncertainty, it is clear that the values that have defined our university—resilience, community, service, compassion and partnership—continue to guide us.

It is this spirit that led to the outpouring of questions from our community members about how they can help during this time. In response, we have established the Carleton Student Emergency Fund for those who have lost their jobs and are struggling with basic living expenses. Every gift made is currently being matched by Carleton University, and funds will be available immediately for students in need.

Please consider making a donation today to help provide short-term financial assistance for essential expenses that may arise as a result of COVID-19.
