Help students in need due to unexpected circumstances caused by COVID-19 crisis

A short summary of your project

Help students in need affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

Who are you?

We have heard from many of you expressing concern for our students and asking how you can help.  We have received over 100 gifts totaling over $125,000, which included generous support from Gary and Kelsey Patterson. Thank you. As new challenges related to COVID-19 arise, we encourage anyone willing and able to help students – who may be struggling to cover unexpected expenses – to contribute to the Frog Family Crisis Fund.

Your story

Since 2007, the TCU Student Emergency Fund (formally listed as the Frog Family Crisis Fund) provides immediate aid to students facing emergency or catastrophic situations that impair their ability to continue in school.

We understand that now in this unprecedented time that our students may be at risk in new ways, especially if a lack of income threatens their access to housing, food or other basic necessities that will help them thrive not only in classes, but in life. 

Where will the money go?

TCU has had a record number of student applications to this fund to assist with housing, food, basic necessities and loss of income.  Every gift will directly impact students in need.
