The coronavirus has brought worldwide suffering and loss, disrupted lives, crippled economies and created uncertainty about the future. One local university wants to offer hope in the midst of the crisis.
On April 8, Cedarville University will hold #CUGiveHope Day to raise scholarship and emergency funds for students and their families facing financial hardship brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
All gifts made to the #CUGiveHope Fund will be given to students as emergency scholarship funds (or as other student needs arise) for the 2020-21 school year.
The one-day fundraising campaign will happen all-online. Those interested in supporting students and their families are encouraged to give before or on April 8 at cedarville.edu/CUGIveHope.
A generous supporter of Cedarville has provided a lead gift of $50,000 for the #CUGiveHope Fund.
“These gifts will provide scholarships and emergency funding to students who are facing financial hardship during this uncertain time and will make it possible for students to return to Cedarville in the future,” commented Dr. Thomas White, president of Cedarville University.
