Assistance for Students

Help LGBTQIA+ Students Thrive During COVID-19

UCR students are experiencing challenges due to COVID-19. As a result, student requests for emergency support continue to increase daily. In an effort to support our LGBTQIA+ students, we ask that you donate to the LGBTRC Student Assistance Fund

All contributions go toward alleviating challenges and unforeseen personal difficulties many LGBTQIA+ students are experiencing due to COVID-19. These include; access to critical medications and mental health services, safe and affirming housing, and basic needs.

Together we can ensure that our students continue to thrive while embracing all their identities.

Every single dollar can make a difference. If you can give even $1, that will help our LGBTQIA+ students to persist in this challenging time. Please give as you are able.

Thank you!
