The Student Emergency Fund helps students who are experiencing unforeseen financial emergencies that could prevent them from continuing their education at King's.

Established in March 2020 after the COVID-19 crisis was declared, the urgent need for the Student Emergency Fund remains great as students continue to struggle with the implications of the pandemic.

With the cost of food and other essential items continuing to rise, food insecurity is one of the most significant challenges students face today. The uncertainty and inability to maintain a sufficient diet impacts their grades, energy level, and concentration, as well as their performance today and, ultimately, their prospects in the future.

The Student Emergency Fund provides limited financial assistance for:

  • food purchases and other essential expenses
  • housing/rent
  • exceptional life circumstances

During these challenging times, we are inspired and grateful for the generosity of the King's community. If you are able, please donate to the King's student emergency fund. Every gift makes a difference.
