UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The international COVID-19 crisis has dramatically and rapidly changed the lives of everyone, including our Falcon family. While we had scheduled our annual Giving Day for Friday, April 3, it's become apparent that our Falcon student family needs your support ... now.
Here are some examples of the hardships our students are facing:
"I am financially limited. I live in section eight housing and am gluten intolerant. I was using my funds for gas and food for my student observations this semester. Work is limited because of this virus and quarantine. I am worried about how long this virus will affect our academic process..."
Senior, Social Work
"I haven't been able to work for the past three weeks due to being extremely ill. I am unable to ask for money from my parents because they are deceased. It is also hard for me to ask for money from my siblings since we are all struggling financially right now."
"I am having to scramble to get food for myself as I have a commuter meal plan and don't live on campus or in River Falls. I'll have to pay someone to come to my house for childcare so I can do my course work while my son with special needs is out of school."
We encourage you to make a recurring gift over the next several months. Any size gift can help make a significant difference.
