Steven Nelson Emergency Fund

Every year, bright and hard-working students are forced to drop out of college after their families discover that they are LGBTQ. These students often lose all financial support from their families and, in many cases, are no longer welcome back in their own homes. The sudden turmoil this creates forces students to abandon their studies so that they can attempt to afford a place to stay. They may suffer periods of homelessness or must work multiple jobs just to survive.

The Boise State Pride Alliance is raising funds to help support these students. Please contribute towards students’ access to food, shelter, and other basic necessities. As little as $5 can provide several meals to students in need.

Thank you for your support.
