More than $375,000 was raised May 5 for university programs in a Tarleton State University partnership with the international organization GivingTuesday. Tarleton’s Global Day of Unity, a day of grass roots philanthropy in response to covid-19, focused on the Student Emergency Fund, university food pantries and the Tarleton Promise
Program, all of which address the financial needs of students affected by the coronavirus and the economic impact of the pandemic. The Student Emergency Fund received almost $27,000. Maintained by the Tarleton Division of Student Affairs, it is designed to help students handle short-term financial hardships.
