April 23, 2021

Dear ECRT supporters -

You are amazing! With your collective generosity, the Economic Crisis Response Team Spark Campaign has reached 48% of its goal of 300 donations of any size.

In just 15 days, 146 donors have contributed over $19,000. We cannot thank you enough! 

Every single dollar will be used to address the needs of Bruins who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19. 

Every donation ensures that Bruins continue on the path towards earning their degree. 

Every gift shows that together we are stronger. 

We look forward to sharing stories of the impact you're making throughout the spring quarter.

You've already done so much just by making a contribution. If you haven't done so already, please consider sharing the ECRT Spark Campaign using the built-in buttons at the top of the project page. Every share will help increase the support of ECRT's emergency funds.

Thank you again for your incredible support of the UCLA community, and for being our partner.  

Choose a giving level



Bruins experiencing sudden financial insecurity may need basic necessities like hygiene products. Your gift could go a long way for a student who is experiencing a lack of income due to the pandemic.



Many students are still facing financial insecurity as a result of the pandemic. $50 could be used to help support these students pay their internet bill, which is critical for remote learning.



$100 can cover an unexpected medical cost for a student afflicted by Covid-19, or in need of prescription medication due to mental or other physical health.



Can help mitigate an unanticipated transportation cost, like a plane ticket home.



Some UCLA students may not be able to travel home during these unprecedented times or experience difficulty paying rent in an off-campus apartment. A gift of $500 could be used to provide 3 weeks of emergency housing.



A $1000 grant can support a student to degree completion by ensuring that they are able to meet all their basic needs on a regular basis. The cost of education goes beyond just tuition, and there are many factors that affect a student's trajectory. This generous gift can help them achieve the dream of a UCLA diploma.
