COVID-19 has touched all industries and every sector of our lives, and Emerson is no exception. Our students and their families are facing new economic realities, reduced incomes, and sudden job losses that will force many to choose between staying in school and keeping their households afloat. Without immediate assistance, many students will not be able to continue their studies. As the global pandemic continues to leave its mark, we are faced with the challenge of ensuring the next generation of Emersonians has the same opportunities as those before them.

It Starts With One

Giving isn’t just about helping current students complete their education and fulfill their potential. It’s about supporting our collective future—the next great leaders in the fields that shape our society and culture. The creativity, passion, expressiveness, inclusivity, inspiration, and action that only Emersonians can bring. Now is not the time to give up on these things. It’s the time to fight for their survival. Because we believe the world needs Emersonians. And right now, Emersonians need us. Each and every one of us.
