The Resource Center and concerned students have come together to organize this spreadsheet on behalf of the folks displaced and otherwise uncertain about their financial well-being, which includes but is not limited to access to safe and affordable housing, quality healthcare, nutritional food, and, at a time when we do not know how long states will be quarantining residents, remote job opportunities. In other words, this sheet is an emergency preparedness effort with both short- and long-term goals. Short-term, at-risk students might need this spreadsheet for relocation, but--if, say, we are asked to remain home for reasons of quarantine, if a stable support in our family dies, or if medical expenses skyrocket--some of us are more vulnerable and might need long-term financial assistance. If you have stumbled upon this spreadsheet and are interested in donating to the FGLI Students at Wesleyan University as a collective, please navigate the this GoFundMe campaign. Thank you for demonstrating how Wesleyan can come together in times of need and choosing to prioritize the most vulnerable members of our community. For any questions regarding this form, please contact jmrussell@wesleyan.edu.

For First-Gen Low Income students - if you are displaced and/or financially stressed in these circumstances, please fill out the "Direct Student Donations" sheet so that our community can directly support you with donations. If you are also in need of housing and/or remote job opportunities down the line, please refer to the "Housing" and "Job Opportunities" tabs.If you are an alumni or community member interested in giving resources other than those listed below, please navigate to this mutual aid spreadsheet by clicking on this box.

For alumni and others in our community who are able to offer resources - please use the "Direct Student Donations" sheet to provide direct donations to those who are the most affected by Wesleyan's closure. If you are also able to provide safe and affordable housing and/or remote job opportunities to recently displaced FGLI students, please provide your information on the "Housing" and "Job Opportunities" tabs. While any leads on housing and job opportunities are greatly appreciated, we would like to stress that direct financial donations are the most effective way to support students at this time. Many students are fortunate enough to have friends and/or family to stay with, and the brunt of the burden this situation has placed on students - many of whom relied on campus jobs to support themselves and their families - is financial.Context: Students have already begun to organize on social media platforms. In particular, Gisselle Yepes created a Twitter thread for FGLI to drop their financial donation information (Venmos, Zelles, Paypals, etc.), and many friends of mine have been reposting the information of high-risk students on Instagram. Love has poured in from acquaintances and strangers alike. I have been equally impressed with the mutual aid spreadsheet circulating, which is linked above. While this support has been heartwarming, I am worried that social media activism is not sustainable and does not reach every at-risk student on this campus.
It is our hope that this spreadsheet can be a sustained resource for high-need student, and a part of that project is being both honest and diligent about what student's needs are and what alumni or community members can offer. Students, if your needs change, please update your level of need on the spreadsheet. If your needs have been met, please reduce the number to 0, but keep your information on the sheet. Alumni and community members, please check this sheet periodically as students' needs change. If something you previously offered is no longer available, please remove it from the sheet.
