Supporting Others During COVID-19

In this time of considerable hardship and distress experienced by many members of the GU community, it is important for those of us who can to reach out to support them.  Here are three very worthy funds accepting donations to provide such support

  • GU Associate Emergency Support Fund at MedStar Health – click the box called “Give Online” to support emergency and crisis situations for applicable non-management associates across MedStar Health.
  • GUCares
    Note: On this webpage scroll down for information on paying a) by check; b) by credit card. For credit card option, click on hot link “secure online giving form”, which takes you to a new window at GU Giving. Scroll down to “Other” and type in “GUCares Employee Emergency Fund”. Then follow directions to “continue,” etc. Sorry for these complications but GU hasn’t (yet) made it simpler!
