Keeping students connected

The Foundation provided students with laptops

The GCU Foundation’s Common Good Fund ensured students cut off from their studies, friends and families during the pandemic had the tech they needed to stay in touch.

As our friends and supporters rallied to help, The Foundation redirected funds that would usually support travel awards and bursaries to give struggling students the technology, such as laptops, they needed to continue their studies online and remain connected. Money for food and rent was also provided to the most vulnerable students.  

We have been overwhelmed by the warmth and generosity of our donors, alumni and friends. We cannot thank them enough for working with us to provide added support to students facing extreme hardship.
