Stay Black and Gold Fund - Student Emergency Need

Stay Black and Gold Fund A Project of UMBC Scholarships

Help Your Fellow Retrievers Stay at UMBC

Sometimes, a simple, unexpected turn in circumstances can mean the difference between graduating and having to drop out of school. It can happen to anybody. Thankfully, in many cases, all it takes is a small push from a fellow Retriever to see them through tough times.

And if there is one thing that sets Retrievers apart from the rest, it's the way we stick up for one another. Whether it's helping a classmate pass a final or coming together to help the people of nations stricken by disaster, we all know that the strength of a community depends on the participation of each member. We have all, at one point or another, stood up for another Retriever in need. So let's take a stand now.

How can you help?

Your gift to the Stay Black and Gold campaign will help Retrievers stay at UMBC. With a small gift, you can support fellow students who truly need your help. Money raised in this campaign directly funds emergency financial aid needs of students at UMBC.

All contributions raised are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.
