Survivor Emergency Fund


What is Denim Day?

Denim Day is a nationally recognized movement to bring awareness to this important topic. Sexual assault and dating violence can lead to elevated medical and counseling costs, legal fees and many other financial obligations that a survivor must endure. 

What is the Emergency Fund?

The Dollars for Denim campaign supports an emergency fund available to survivors of domestic violence, including sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.

Why donate to the Survivor 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.

We hope that this emergency fund will remove one of the many obstacles that student survivors of sexual or interpersonal violence face on their path to healing, recovery, and persistence to graduation.
