Ohio Dominican University (ODU) has established a Student Emergency Fund to help support its students who have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 coronavirus health crisis.

Gifts made to the Student Emergency Fund will assist students by providing relief for expenses related to:

  • Basic necessities (food, toiletries, etc.)
  • Educational-related expenses
  • Technology to support remote learning and institutional support of these efforts
  • Travel or relocation expenses

    To support the fund, visit ohiodominican.edu/GiveNow and select “ODU Student Emergency Fund” when asked where you would like to direct your gift.
