Survivor Emergency Fund

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Dollars for Denim 2019 campaign! With your support we raised $2,650 to open our Survivor Emergency Fund!

What is the Emergency Fund?

After our most recent Dollars for Denim campaign, the Stop Violence Program has raised a little over $6,000 to start an emergency fund to support survivors of gender violence. 

We are working with the Foundation to make the Fund operational, and once established, application guidelines and forms will be available here! We intend to have money available for student survivors starting in the Fall 2019 semester.

Why do survivors of gender violence need an emergency fund?

Gender violence can lead to a number of unforeseen expenses. Sexual assault survivors may have unanticipated medical expenses, including medications and services not covered by insurance and not provided by Student Health. Relationship violence survivors may need help with a security deposit or application fee to move out of an abusive living situation and into a new home. Stalking survivors may need support to increase personal security, like changing or installing locks on doors and windows, or accessing technical assistance to remove tracking malware from computers and cellphones.

The STOP Violence Program firmly believes that survivors of gender violence should not have to pay for expenses incurred as a direct result of the violence they have experienced. We hope that our emergency fund will remove one of the many obstacles that survivors of gender violence face on their path to healing and recovery.

Thank you for your support!
