Giving - an urgent need


Private support helps ensure that, even in a changing world, our students can keep learning and our faculty can keep teaching.

Responding to Urgent Need

As the NC State community navigates the complicated new reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, many students are facing unforeseen challenges. With campus housing and other resources closed, there are students in need of emergency housing or travel funds. Others are unable to work. Some lack the resources to participate fully in online instruction. Many don’t know how long their next paycheck needs to last.

How You Can Help

The Student Emergency Fund was established by the Division of Academic and Student Affairs to help ensure that NC State students have access to the support and resources they need to successfully recover from unexpected financial crises and remain on track academically. Gifts to the Student Emergency Fund will make an immediate difference for those dealing with unexpected financial needs.
