Support the COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund

Students in a lab

How can you help?

Our students are facing urgent financial need due to the measures to protect public safety during this COVID-19 pandemic. Too many students have lost their jobs due to business closures, have no way to pay their rent, or even purchase food during this unprecedented time. Our goal is to support every student experiencing financial difficulties and your donations are urgently needed now.

The Student Emergency Fund helps students in urgent financial need resulting from COVID-19. 100% of your donation will go to students at George Brown College which will support the following areas:

  • Food insecurity
  • Housing
  • Loss of income due to unemployment
  • Unexpected education expenses (e.g. internet access, computers)
  • Unexpected personal expenses (e.g. family care, travel to return home)

Please support the Student Emergency Fund today. Every dollar counts.

Together, we can make a difference.

"Working on essential service projects has been an honour and it feels good to be a part of something which benefits the community. When the COVID-19 pandemic began the importance of these projects really came into focus for me, and the essential service workers I have come to know are inspirational. We are so fortunate as a society to have such wonderful people keeping us safe, and it has been a privilege to work alongside them to build these new facilities and infrastructure which will serve Ontario during the pandemic."
