Colby students for mutual aid created

Lorimer Chapel at Colby College.

This GoFundMe was created to support an ongoing fund by Colby College students for mutual aid. The organizers are students passionate about building a community within the Colby student body and alumni network where they can support the students most impacted by COVID-19 and Colby’s reopening. The fund is specifically benefiting students of color, first-gen low-income students, and queer and trans students. All donations will go directly to students for specific needs such as flights, groceries, and text-books

“As the COVID-19 pandemic ravages the United States, marginalized communities are impacted the most. With Colby’s reopening, we must ensure these students have the support and abilities to return to Colby or choose to do remote learning without a significant financial burden.” says the fundraiser organizers.
