Black Hills State University Foundation
Jackets in Need Emergency Fund
BHSU President Laurie Nichols
The COVID-19 has disrupted the lives of millions of Americans, including our students. In the wake of this crisis, the BHSU Foundation along with BHSU Student Association has created the Jackets in Need Emergency Fund to support students who now find themselves facing financial struggles that were unforeseen as little as two weeks ago. For many, what little income they have is diminishing rapidly. Many are confronting the loss of work, loss of child-care options, housing and food insecurity, and are at high risk of dropping out. We desperately need your help.
By making a contribution to the Jackets in Need Emergency Fund, you can make a difference in the lives of our students. Many are the first in their families to attend college. . Your support will provide emergency funding for housing, food and technology to students who are unable to meet the unexpected financial burdens resulting from the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic.
