Trojans Helping Trojans

Lending a Hand to Your Trojan Family

A fundraising campaign for Dakota State Foundation

The impact of COVID-19 has already significantly changed the daily routines of many DSU employees and students. In addition, our students are seeing their opportunities to work and earn funds to support their education dwindle. The Trojans Helping Trojans fund will be used to provide critical resources to directly assist the Trojan Family.

Donations will used to meet various needs of students, faculty, and staff. Examples include food and housing, daily living and transportation costs, emergency and unforeseen expenses, assist with income loss, access reliable home internet and much more.
