Blugold emergency Fund

Taking care of our own through the
Blugold Emergency Support Fund


The Blugold Emergency Support Fund provides immediate financial support for UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff with emergency financial situations such as a medical condition, housing crisis or financial emergency. Together, we can “be there” for a student or colleague in his or her time of need.

Since the Blugold Emergency Support Fund was established in 2013, more than $8,000 has been awarded to Blugolds with emergency financial situations. This fund has made it possible for students to continue school after learning of a serious medical condition, visit family members during a time of tragedy, find housing when they had no place to go and more.

Thank you for considering a gift to the Blugold Emergency Support Fund, gifts of any amount to this fund will directly support Blugolds in need.
