Donate Today to COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Lewis University Students

Published: April 6, 2020.

To address the needs of our students during this pandemic, a COVID-19 Emergency Fund has been established to support the unexpected costs due to the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus outbreak. 

While some people are not in a position to give, many have been asking how they can help.  Lewis University Board of Trustees Chair Kathy Halloran ‘74, has offered to match all gifts to the Lewis University COVID-19 Emergency Fund up to $25,000.
