Student Emergency Fund

The purpose of the Student Emergency Fund is to provide compassionate assistance to students in emergency situations. It is intended to assist students during times of crisis by providing financial support where a clear need exists.

Because these funds are made available through the generosity of the family and friends of undergraduate students, they are intended to provide financial assistance for current George Fox University students only.

If you are planning to make a request for a student, please read the Student Emergency Fund Guidelines.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to read the guidelines BEFORE submitting a request.

To submit a request, please use the Student Emergency Fund Request Form.
