Thank you to those who have donated to support student emergency funding at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Our current combined total raised for both funds is approximately $300,000. The funds raised to date have been distributed, assisting with basic, critical needs such as food, rent, utilities and family supports. You are also helping those who have struggled with job or internship loss and unexpected travel and housing costs.

We continue to receive requests for financial support from our students. Many are still unable to travel home, face challenges with remote learning in rural areas, and continue to experience a range of employment and housing challenges.

This is a very challenging time for everyone and we truly appreciate your dedication to our students. If you have not yet contributed, please know that the need is still great and we continue to gratefully accept your donations.

When you support Memorial, you inspire and energize all those who benefit from your gift. 

By empowering the ingenuity of our students and researchers, you create incredible opportunities for leadership and discovery - and by extension, build a healthy and sustainable society.

When you give to Memorial University, you make a difference. Don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Development to find out how you can give and learn how your gift can have an impact.
