So they can focus on their student journey...
Together, as a Hornet Family, we have a history of finding solutions to issues facing our community and beyond. We are the first to lift each other up and take those first steps out of the darkness together. With a gift today, you can ensure our students have access to critical support for basic needs, undue financial burden, mental health crises, and more.
Sacramento State offers a number of ways to help provide for students' basic needs. The four funds listed below are accessible to any student. Support for basic student needs may also be available through several colleges.
Sac State CARES
This fund provides us with the flexibility to respond to students' emerging needs such as homelessness, unforeseen financial burden, mental health crises, and so much more.
Seth Nelsen Student Emergency Grant
This fund provides for grants to students who encounter financial emergencies that may impact their ability to continue their education.
Student Emergency Housing
This fund provides shelter (and meals) for students faced with housing insecurity, as well as assistance with finding a permanent housing solution.
ASI Food Pantry
