In response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, the UWM at Waukesha Foundation and campus created an emergency fund to support students during this time. We are happy to report that the foundation awarded nearly $4,000 to students impacted by COVID-19 this spring and summer in the form of grants from this Emergency Fund. With generous donations from our spring appeal and previously existing funds, we were able to provide support to students who lost jobs due to the pandemic. Many of these students did not have family who could provide financial support because their households were struggling to make ends meet. Without support, our students could not afford rent, groceries or technology essential to continuing their studies. We are proud that we were able to ease their burden.
The campus emergency fund is still accepting donations. Visit this site to help support students during this unprecedented time.
