The Global Community Emergency Fund will provide direct support to members of the UC Davis community including visiting scholars, students, faculty and their families who have an urgent and immediate financial need related to natural disasters, humanitarian crises, and other circumstances beyond their control. Funds will support immediate and essential needs such as housing assistance, transportation, utilities, and other basic living expenses and/or educational expenses.
Our most urgent need at this time is to support students and their families affected by the crisis in Afghanistan.
Chancellor Gary May and Provost Mary Croughan have generously committed $50,000 to support our current, most urgent efforts to bring visiting scholars from Afghanistan to join the UC Davis community.
We are asking you to join us in our effort to support not only members of our community impacted by recent events in Afghanistan, but to help the UC Davis global community at large by making a gift to the Global Community Emergency Fund!
