Change lives and save lives.

In the midst of this COVID-19 public health crisis, our mission has never been more clear or more critical. Join us in the fight by assisting students impacted by the crisis.

University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund

The University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund was created to help support students and employees on all four campuses who are now facing sudden financial hardship due to crisis situations such as last year’s flooding, personal hardship and now the current cancellation of on-campus classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Education takes a backseat for students who are food insecure or unable to pay housing and other expenses. Many don’t know the status of their employment, and many will return home for the rest of the semester. For some students, this is a life-altering crisis.

Please, if you’re able, consider a gift to the University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance fund to help at-risk students in our university family.

Maverick Food Pantry Excellence Fund

The Maverick Food Pantry contributes to the university’s culture of caring by providing those in immediate need within the UNO and UNMC communities with food and personal hygiene products and connections to other area resources for support.


UNO Fund – Area of Greatest Need

A gift to this unrestricted fund enables the UNO chancellor to assist when special opportunities arise or provide immediate support to areas where students and faculty may need it most.

UNO Fund – Faculty Development

An education is only as good as its educators. A gift to this area helps UNO recruit and retain world-class instructors and researchers, so we can continue to build the best faculty in the state of Nebraska.


UNO Student Hardship Fund

The UNO Student Hardship Fund supports students at UNO who are now facing sudden financial hardship due to crisis situations such as the current cancellation of on-campus classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
