About Emily Carr University of Art + Design and our response to COVID-19
The impact of COVID-19 on communities across the country has been unprecedented. This is a time of great uncertainty, with many of us waking up to fresh difficulties on a daily basis.
In the span of a week, our students’ lives have been turned upside down. The university suspended all face-to-face instruction, postponed convocation and the graduate exhibition, and shut down shops, studios and learning facilities. While this abrupt transition to distance learning was necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, it has also put increased pressure on our students; many are now experiencing extreme stress due to financial anxiety, disruption to their studies, separation from family, or sickness and isolation.
Your gift of any amount to the Emily Cares Student Emergency Fund will be 100% dedicated to helping students overcome these distressing times. Every dollar to Emily Cares will go to a student in need and provide a critical buffer while they seek out additional sources of financial support.
We’re working hard with government, community partners and donors like you to find new ways to support our students. And together, we’ve made a great start. But students still need your help right now and for the long haul.
