Purple Eagles Emergency Relief Fund

Niagara University's response to the challenges of COVID-19

A fundraising campaign for Niagara University

At Niagara, we stay true to our Vincentian values and honor St. Vincent de Paul, the patron saint of organized charity, by serving those less fortunate. Right now, our students need your help as they face challenges and financial hardships brought on by COVID-19. Crises like this are not selective--any one of us could have experienced a situation during our college careers that caused our life's path to change suddenly. Over the next 90-days we ask you to support this one-time emergency fund which will directly support our students and their families with a variety of urgent and critical needs. 

The current pandemic has forced our students to transition to a new way of learning and adapt to a drastically changing world. Our families have made great sacrifices to send their children to Niagara to experience all that we offer. Now, we must offer them even more. Let’s lead by example and show our young Purple Eagles how powerful the Vincentian spirit can be. Together, we can help ease some of the uncertainty they may be experiencing about their future and ensure them that what they have worked toward is still a reality.

Your generosity will allow us to maintain enrollment and provide immediate assistance with:

  • Scholarships
  • On-campus Housing
  • Meal Plans
  • Textbooks
  • Transportation
  • Other Student Needs

Now is the time to rally together so that current and future Purple Eagles can continue to have the same life-changing opportunities we were fortunate enough to have experienced uninterrupted. Now more than ever, we can make a difference in the lives of our students!
