Imagine you’re a student who has to choose between buying food or paying rent. Or perhaps you’re new to Vancouver and are feeling anxious and alone. Maybe your mom is sick and you can’t afford a ticket home. Every day, students at Emily Carr University of Art + Design face stressful situations like these. The need for counselling has increased by 15 percent this year alone. But while we can’t prevent life’s difficulties, we can help students through them with your support.
The Emily Cares Student Emergency Fund will support our students in three ways:
- Emergency Response
- Crisis Prevention
- Wellness Programs
Here’s how you can help us help students.
For as little as a latte or a movie ticket, you can change a student’s life. Your monthly gift of $5 will provide mental health care packages to four students over the course of a year. A $10 monthly gift will provide up to five emergency grocery vouchers, and a $25 monthly gift will purchase a gravity blanket for all students to use. A $50 monthly gift will help expand our wellness program and provide students with resources that were never before offered at Emily Carr University.
Your gift of any size is greatly appreciated!
$10,000 in matching funds is available for 2018, so you can double your impact on a student’s life and help make this a permanent support program at Emily Carr University. Your gift today to the Emily Cares Student Emergency Fund is an investment in a student and a valuable contribution to their creative future.
Help us help students by donating today.
