Stanford Students COVID-19 Support Fund

As you may already know, many Stanford students are experiencing turmoil as the quarter is moved online and a majority of undergraduates are expected to leave campus before this Wednesday at 5PM. While many students are able to go home to their families and communities in this trying time, many students, the most vulnerable members of our community, like FLI students, international students, students who are experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic abuse do not have a place to go. Multiple members of these communities are not able to stay on campus - whether it is because they left campus in the last week or because their request to stay was denied. This is an intense, overwhelming time for so many members of our community and the only way for us to deal with these difficulties is if we, as the Stanford community, stand together and support one another


Over the last 48 hours, there has been an outpouring of community support and care amongst the student body and we are asking you to extend your help to Stanford students impacted by COVID-19.  This gofundme is an extension of the COVID-19 Student Support Fund which began as the Columbae discretionary fund and quickly grew over 2 days to $26,300 raised entirely by donations from 430 people (mostly students). We have been able to support 225 students so far, but 300 students have requested support, and many students have requested more support than we were able to initially offer. There is still a great and growing need that we do not have the resources to comprehensively help students. We are asking the greater community for support during this time. Please consider donating!


How would your contribution help students during this time?


These funds will be sent to students in need during this transitional period and for longer term support that financial aid can not provide support for. These needs include food costs until financial aid can provide support, housing costs for students that do not have a home or can not go home, storage costs, internet access, and multiple other costs associated with this sudden change.


Our team of more than ten people from multiple communities and groups on campus are ensuring that all funds are dispersed to those in need. 

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or are a Stanford Student in need of support please email us in the contact box below or at [email redacted]. We are happy to talk further!
