Can't attend but you want to show your support? Donate!

The student emergency grant fund needs our support in order for its existence to continue. We ask that every student - attending Dance Marathon or not - consider raising money for or donating to the student emergency grant fund. To do this, you can share the giving link with friends, family, teachers, co-workers, and ask them to help you by making a contribution.

We also have collection envelopes if you're more old-school. Thanks for helping make this grant possible, it will be a resource for all students and may even help you some day!

Hornet Proud Fund

The Hornet Proud Fund will assist students who experience a financial emergency that could jeopardize their studies at Sac State, such as significant loss due to fire/natural disaster; sudden unemployment; sudden eviction/homelessness; and many other crisis situations.

Through our efforts with Dance Marathon, we will raise funds to assist eligible students in coping with an unexpected hardship, so that they may continue their education. This program’s long-range goal is to ensure students in crisis always have access to emergency financial resources to stay in school and graduate. The Student Emergency Grant Fund will be administered by the Office of Student Affairs.
