The Cameron Aggie Response Fund also known as CARE is a fund designated to assist students with immediate needs due to extenuating financial circumstances. The fund has existed since 2016, but recent events have prompted a resurgence in the need and critical use of this fund.
As you may remember, due to the incredible circumstances created by COVID-19, all unrestricted gifts will be going to the CARE Fund, to help our students who are grappling with extra struggles due to the pandemic.
Here is an example of the hardships students have faced:
My dad lost his job due to COVID. It’s been financially pretty hard on my family…This grant would save me a lot of stress, and my family as well. My parents haven’t been able to financially support me, but if they knew I was blessed with this grant, that would take SO much off their plate.
