Supporting the UNM community during this pandemic

Posted March 27, 2020

Dear UNM alumni and friends,

Every Lobo – whether they are in New Mexico, across the country, or around the globe – has been impacted by this pandemic.

UNM is constantly monitoring the rapidly evolving nature of this health emergency and continuously working to keep our community safe. Our top priority is the health, well-being, and safety of those on our campuses and the community at large. We are helping our students continue their academic journeys, and our Health Sciences Center and Hospital System are continuing their work to provide care to those in need, to conduct vital research, and train our next generation of health care providers.

In this time of uncertainty, you may be looking for ways to help. Our hospital system is working diligently to provide quality emergency medical care and assistance to patients whose lives have been affected. Your gift to the UNM Hospital Crisis Relief Fund will provide much needed support for equipment, supplies and other resources to care for our patients and protect our staff.

Like you, our students have been impacted by this crisis. Consider a meaningful gift to the Main Campus Student Emergency Relief Fund or the Health Sciences Student Emergency Relief Fund. Your donation will help students navigate financial difficulties such as:

• Housing and food insecurity
• Reduced job hours/income
• Technology needs for remote learning
• Medical care and prescriptions

You can also support our Lobo Food Pantry, which provides food to students, faculty, and community members who need access to food.

Your gift can make a difference in someone’s life today. With your help, we can succeed.

Thank you, stay healthy and safe.
