The Widener Student Emergency Fund

Student Emergency Fund header - email

Because of our current national and international health emergency, many students are dealing with unexpected costs including travel, technology needs, or the loss of internship and co-op wages. In some cases their families are experiencing the loss or reduction of parents’ wages, which will impact their ability to meet student expenses. Your support of the Widener Student Emergency Fund will provide immediate assistance to students with pressing, unmet needs. 

Due to our transition to off-campus work during the Covid-19 Emergency, mail delivery is delayed. To make an immediate impact with your gift, please make your gift online. To receive assistance by phone, please call Myra Legg at 610-499-4670, or email

Mail may be sent to the attention of:
Myra Legg

   and Alumni Engagement
1 University Pl
Chester, PA 19013

Gifts sent by the USPS will be processed as we are able to do so.

Faculty and staff who wish to make a gift via payroll deduction can do so using the form on our faculty and staff giving page.
