Many students have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Here are some of the ways you can help in these challenging times.

Contribute to the UFV Student Emergency Fund

Redirect your payroll parking fees

UFV has suspended parking fees for all staff and faculty until further notice. As a result, UFV Giving has created an initiative that allows you to redirect your parking fees to the Student Emergency Fund. Learn more about the parking fee donations initiative.

Redirect your parking fee

Make a one-time donation

If you are able, please consider making a contribution to the UFV Student Emergency Fund. The funds will provide some relief to students experiencing urgent and serious financial difficulties so they can continue to focus on their studies.
