We find ourselves in unprecedented times, and this calls for unprecedented philanthropy to support the mission-critical work to meet the needs of Xavier students, Xavier faculty, and the Xavier community.
This one-time fund will exist until September 1, 2020, giving the Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations and Annual Giving sufficient time to meet the goal.
Leadership at Xavier began to craft this fund immediately after actions were taken as part of COVID-19 precautions and protocols. Once it was determined that the university would undertake all necessary steps to ensure student safety and security, leadership launched the fund in mid-March 2020 as part of the immediate COVID-19 response plan.
This fund is different from any other prior Xavier emergency fund, as it is intended to encourage support for the current needs of the university and its response to the current global pandemic.
Yes. Similar to current fundraising efforts, all unrestricted gifts will be directed to support the Xavier L.O.V.E. Fund, which meets the needs of Xavier’s top 5-6 priorities associated with our new reality of providing a seamless transition to virtual classrooms for students and faculty.
Yes. Unless otherwise directed by a donor, the needs articulated by the University are the priorities that will be funded by the Xavier L.O.V.E. Fund.
All donors who have made a gift to the fund will be listed on a special page of the Xavier website dedicated to this purpose. Additionally, donors can be listed in the Honor Roll of donors.
