Together, as a Hornet Family, we have a history of finding solutions to issues facing our community and beyond. We are the first to lift each other up and take those first steps out of the darkness together. We’ve taken on adversity time and again, and we are facing it again now.
Instruction is continuing, both virtually and in-person, and our students are showing determination and a desire to advance all our lives. Like our purpose-driven students, we must continue to look forward and ask, “What more can we do?” With a gift today, you can ensure our students have access to critical support for basic needs, undue financial burden, mental health crises, and more.
Let’s support each other and help everyone rise above the many challenges we are facing. Below are some funds that will better equip Sacramento State to support our students and our future.
Sac State CARES
An unrestricted fund with students-first in mind. Some needs are foreseeable, but others can hit unexpectedly. This fund provides us with the flexibility to respond to students' emerging needs such as homelessness, unforeseen financial burden, mental health crises, and so much more. Gifts to this fund equip our students with the most essential resources required for our students to persist and succeed.
Seth Nelsen Student Emergency Grant
This fund provides for grants to students who encounter financial emergencies that may impact their ability to continue their education. The grants provide a safety net to allow students to get through the emergency and remain enrolled.
Student Emergency Housing
This fund provides housing for students faced with housing insecurity, with the intent of finding a sustainable housing situation.
ASI Food Pantry
Provides food and basic necessities to Sac State students with financial hardships or food insecurity, at no cost.
