Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, the DePaul community has raised more than $100,000 for those affected by the pandemic.

DePaul has highlighted three key areas for coronavirus-related support on the university's crowdfunding site, Inspire DePaul: the Student Emergency Assistance Fund, the Vincentian Assistance Fund, and a fund to create and deliver personal protective equipment for healthcare workers on the front lines of the epidemic.

“We are grateful for the outpouring of support that has come from our campus community as we work together to help those in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic," says Sarah Myksin, director of annual giving in the Office of Advancement.
