Graduate Student Association - Student Emergency Fund


Can I give to more than one area or project?

Yes, you can make multiple gifts when you check out. To select multiple gift designations, select the "Add a Gift to this Donation button", select the additional designation that you'd like to support, then select the amount that you'd like to contribute to the additional designation(s) that you would like to add. Your card will only be charged once for the sum of your donations.

Is there a maximum gift amount?

Thank you for considering making a charitable gift.  We have a $5,000 limit per credit card transaction as we strive to keep our fees low in order to realize the full charitable gift for the program.  If you wish to make a larger gift, please consider setting up an EFT, utilizing a wire transfer or mailing a check so that the program can realize the entire amount of your gift. 

Why is my credit card gift showing as incomplete or invalid?

We recommend using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge when making your gift. We do not recommend using Internet Explorer, please use one of the recommended browsers. Please verify your billing address is correct for the credit card you are using, that can also cause your transaction to show as incomplete.
