Dear MSV alumni & friends,

Today is Giving Tuesday – a global day of unity and giving in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has shaken our world.

As you may already know, many of our students are struggling. They are facing an enormous amount of financial pressure, in their personal and academic journeys. That is why we, as an Alumni Association Board of Directors, chose to support the newly formed MSVU President’s Student Relief Fund with a $5,000 donation.

But more is needed. To date over 370 students have applied for financial support through this fund, and we are challenged to meet this demand.

On this special day of giving, I am writing to ask you to consider supporting this fund which will directly help students gain access to housing, food, tuition, technology, mental health services and transportation. Your gift will help ensure students receive the financial support they need during this challenging time. Your donation also represents an investment in the present and future success of our students.

Online donations can be made to the fund here. Extreme gratitude to those of you who have already given. It is appreciated beyond words.

Please continue to take good care of yourself, and of each other, and remember that we are all in this together.

Sincerely,

Alison MacDonald

President, Mount Saint Vincent University Alumni Association
