COVID-19: How you can support students facing unanticipated expenses

On March 11, President John J. DeGioia announced Georgetown’s transition to a virtual learning environment as part of the effort to stem the spread of COVID-19. In the days since that announcement, the Georgetown community’s strength of spirit has been evident in many ways—particularly in the outpouring of interest we’ve received from alumni and friends in supporting students who require assistance transitioning to distance learning.

Student needs are many and varied, ranging from travel expenses to groceries to WiFi access to storage for personal belongings. Your gift to the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund for Students will support the university’s commitment to providing assistance to any student who requires it. (Please visit the Georgetown COVID-19 Resource Center to view all relevant information and communications.)

We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of concern for our students from the larger Georgetown community and the desire to help, even as you contend in your own lives with the challenges of the COVID-19 public health crisis. Thank you now and always for being Hoyas for others.
